Though Pfizer just signed a deal to deliver even more shots to the U.S., a recent Pew Research Center survey found that about 4 in 10 people were not inclined to get the vaccine.
This is problematic because in order for the U.S. to get to a “herd immunity,” approximately 70% of citizens would need to get the shot.
