According to a new poll conducted by Reuters, sixty-two percent of Americans think that unvaccinated people should not be allowed to travel on airplanes.
The poll also found that 55 percent of Americans think unvaccinated people should not be allowed to work out in public gyms, go to a movie theater, or go to a concert.
The Reuters poll consisted of 1,005 people. Fifty-four percent of respondents said they were “very interested” in getting the COVID-19 vaccine and 27 percent said they were not interested in getting it.
As of Friday, 18 percent of Americans received at least the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. During his state of the union address, President Biden said all adults will be able to receive a vaccine by May 1.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week that it was not changing its travel recommendations for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. The CDC still recommends that all Americans should not travel.
In response, the airline industry stressed its efforts to prevent the spread of Covid-19. Early in his presidency, Biden made mask-wearing during air travel a federal mandate, rather than a requirement from U.S. airlines.
