Fifty-eight percent of Americans say they are now willing to get a COVID-19 vaccine, according to a new Gallup poll released Tuesday.

The number is up from a low of 50% in September. In addition, 42% say they would not be willing to get a vaccine if one was available now.

Here are highlights from the poll, conducted before promising announcements about two vaccines were made:

  • 49% of Republicans say they would be willing to be vaccinated, while 69% of Democrats would be.
  • 26% of Republicans, who don’t agree to be vaccinated, say they have concerns about the rushed timeline of the vaccines, 19% say they want to first confirm it is safe, 20% say they don’t trust vaccines generally, and 14% want to wait to see how effective it is.
  • 54% of Democrats, who don’t agree to be vaccinated, say they have concerns about the rushed timeline, 30% want to wait to confirm it is safe, 2% say they don’t trust vaccines generally, and 4% want to wait to see how effective it is.
  • 61% of men are willing to get a COVID-19 vaccine – up 5 percentage points from a September poll.
  • 54% of women say they would be willing to be vaccinated – an increase of 10 percentage points since September.

The poll, conducted Oct. 19-Nov. 1, surveyed 2,985 people. The margin of error is plus or minus 3 percentage points.
