A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 74 percent of American adults received a COVID-19 vaccination. Twenty-two percent said they have not. The 74 percent figure represents a seven-point increase in less than a month.

Of those who have been vaccinated, 67 percent said they have received a COVID-19 booster shot. Thirty-two percent haven’t. Combining the figures, 49 percent of adults are both vaccinated and boosted.


In September, 77 percent of those who had received a vaccination said they’d be willing to get a booster.

According to the new survey, being vaccinated against COVID does not relieve concerns about the disease. In fact, vaccinated Americans are more concerned about COVID than the unvaccinated. Those who have received a booster shot are most concerned.

Eighty-six percent of Democrats have been vaccinated. Sixty-eight percent of both Republicans and unaffiliated voters said the same. Among those already vaccinated, 79 percent of Democrats received a booster while 59 percent of Republicans and 58 percent of unaffiliated voters have.

Fifty-two percent of Democrats said they are “very concerned” about the threat of the Chinese Virus. Just 22 percent of Republicans and 26 percent of unaffiliated voters agree.
