New Ipsos findings

Experts agree the simplest way to get businesses — and the global economy — back on track is with a coronavirus vaccine. But what if people don’t want to get vaccinated?

As conspiracy theories and other misinformation have spread widely and quickly, only three-quarters of Americans say they would be willing to get a coronavirus vaccine if one was developed, according to Ipsos/ABC News polling.

That’s better than rates with the annual flu vaccine, but might not be enough to fight off future waves of the coronavirus.

Experts say as much as 90% of the population would need to be vaccinated — or achieve immunity by being exposed to the virus — to prevent future waves.

Two-thirds of Americans say that how a brand responds to the coronavirus crisis will impact whether they engage with them in the future — and 81% of Americans think most brands have shown empathy in response to the crisis, according to a new PepsiCo Beverages North America-Ipsos poll.

More people say they're comfortable going back to work — but they're not comfortable with their kids going back to school

One-quarter of Americans say that they would be unlikely to get a coronavirus vaccine, according to ABC News/Ipsos polling. That's better than the 43% of Americans who skip annual flu vaccines — but much worse than the rate of people vaccinated for measles, polio and hepatitis B.

Nearly half of Americans said they were watching the news more often last month, but that number has now dropped to less than a third, according to a Newsy/Ipsos poll.

At the same time, nearly three-quarters of Americans say keeping up with news about the coronavirus is overwhelming, and half of people say they're actively seeking information that's specifically not about the coronavirus.

Me: this last paragraph shows the public, in large, is tired of the media fear show. In a way, it's embarrassing. Keep stoking that fire, scaring people half to death. Yes, report on it. It's your job. Yet I feel like it too, it's obsessive coverage. If it's not Trump or Coronavirus, it's an afterthought.

Sometimes, sorry, it's like STFU about it for 10 minutes.
