Only 58 percent of adults aged 50 to 80 years report being somewhat or very likely to get a COVID-19 vaccine

(HealthDay News) -- Older adults are less likely to get a COVID-19 vaccine than a flu vaccine, according to a report published online Nov. 24 based on the results of the University of Michigan National Poll on Healthy Aging.

Preeti Malani, M.D., from the University of Michigan Institute for Healthcare Policy and Innovation in Ann Arbor, and colleagues conducted an online survey (Oct. 9 to 27, 2020) of 1,556 randomly selected older adults (aged 50 to 80 years) to assess opinions of the flu vaccine and a potential COVID-19 vaccine.
