The percentage of Americans who say they will get a first-generation coronavirus vaccine as soon as one becomes available has dropped, results of an Axios-Ipsos survey show.

The survey, which queried 1,008 adults between September 18-21, showed 43% of both Democrats and independents, as well as 33% of Republicans, would get a first-generation of coronavirus vaccine. Those numbers are down from a previous poll on the same topic.

An August survey showed that 56% of Democrats would get a coronavirus vaccine as soon as it is released, 45% of independents would do so, and 41% of Republicans would.

The late August poll also revealed that 53% of Americans said they did not want to receive such a vaccine as soon as it is available. In the most recent survey, that number was up to 60%. Additionally, 33% of respondents now identify themselves as "not at all likely" to receive the vaccine, versus 26% in August.
