US Marines are hardly alone in choosing to decline experimental COVID-19 vaccinations. Data from the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) suggests that millions of Americans are skipping their second doses of the jabs. A recent report from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation found more than one-third of nonelderly American adults say they are now unlikely to get vaccinated.
Large numbers of people in Europe also seem unlikely to accept COVID-19 vaccines. A recent survey found almost four in ten people in France and 23 percent in Germany say they definitely or probably won’t get them. In London around one-quarter of National Health Service (NHS) staff are refusing the jabs.
