The number of Americans who have already been vaccinated or want to receive their shots as soon as possible continues to rise, although enthusiasm still varies significantly by demographic group, according to the latest KFF vaccine tracking poll.

Between the lines: Republicans, white evangelical Christians and rural residents remain most likely to say that they won't get the vaccine, while older Americans, Democrats and college graduates are most enthusiastic.

By the numbers: 61% of Americans have either been vaccinated or intend to be as soon as they can, KFF found.

  • Only 17% of Americans are still taking a "wait and see" approach to the vaccine, down from 39% in December. The share of Americans who say they definitely won't take the vaccine has remained about the same since December, and was at 13% this month.
  • Black adults saw the largest increase in vaccine enthusiasm this month, with 55% now saying they've gotten the vaccine or will as soon as possible — a 14-percentage-point increase since February.

New York State will make adults over the age of 30 eligible for the coronavirus vaccine on March 30, and all adults 16 years and older eligible beginning April 6, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Monday.

Why it matters: The state was the original epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the U.S., and it's reported nearly 50,000 total deaths since the pandemic began. New York will make all adults eligible for the vaccine almost one month ahead of President Biden's goal for all states to do so by May 1.

Millions of Americans remain vulnerable as variants drive up cases

Coronavirus cases are on the rise again in several states, partially a result of variants of the virus becoming more widespread, experts say.

Why it matters: Even though a remarkable 72% of Americans 65 and older have received at least one dose of the vaccine, millions of Americans — particularly younger Americans with underlying conditions — remain vulnerable.

Canada suspends use of AstraZeneca vaccine

Canada is suspending use of the AstraZeneca coronavirus vaccine for people under 55 due to concerns that the shot could cause blood clots, ABC News reports.

Why it matters: AstraZeneca's COVID-19 vaccine has been put on hold throughout parts of Europe and has not yet received its emergency use authorization in the U.S. Canada is also facing a relatively slow vaccine rollout, with just 1.8% of its population being fully vaccinated, Bloomberg News notes.
