ABSTRACT. The purpose of this study was to empirically examine COVID-19 threat perceptions and willingness to get vaccinated in relation to efficacy, safety, and trust concerns. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from ASPE, CBS, Hertfordshire County Council, KFF, OECD, Pew Research Center, Purpose, UN, and University of Florida/CPIC, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding attitudes and intentions toward COVID-19 vaccination during such a public health crisis. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.

Keywords: vaccine; hesitancy; COVID-19; side effect; mistrust; perception
