The vast majority of Americans support the feds pausing the Johnson & Johnson vaccine in response to reports of serious blood clots among a handful of recipients, according to a new poll.
Around 91 percent were aware that federal officials recently called for J&J shots to be halted as they investigate the cases — and of those people, 88 percent said it was the right move, according to a survey conducted by pollster Ipsos and news outlet Axios.
The pause also doesn’t appear to have turned more people away from getting vaccinated — around 30 percent of respondents said they’re not likely to get the inoculation, the same rate as a month earlier.
Cliff Young, president of Ipsos U.S. Public Affairs, said the findings suggest that Americans are “unfazed.”
But he noted that it was “super impressive” how many people were aware of the pause.
“The way forward [out of the pandemic] is about the vaccine, so if there’s any stumble, people are going to pay attention to it — but it hasn’t had an impact thus far,” Young told the news outlet.
A separate YouGov poll last week did find that trust in the J&J shot specifically had dropped 15 percent after the pause, though confidence in the vaccines from Moderna and Pfizer remained high.
The poll, which was conducted from April 16 to 19, surveyed 1,033 adults in the US.
