Colorado vaccine hesitancy remains steady
Data: CDC; Chart: Sara Wise/Axios

Colorado is less hesitant than other states when it comes to the COVID-19 vaccines, new research shows, but the portion who don't want it remains solid.

  • The Eastern Plains remain the most reluctant, according to a new analysis from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that looked at U.S. Census Bureau's Household Pulse Survey.

By the numbers: A separate poll released Monday shows the population hesitant to the coronavirus vaccines remains stable in Colorado, despite a state campaign to boost confidence in the shots.

  • About 15% of likely Colorado voters said they don't plan to get the vaccine, according to a poll released Monday from Keating Research and two Democratic firms. The poll's margin of error is plus-or-minus 4.3 percentage points.
  • The late-April Keating poll is roughly the same as a different survey from late-February that put the number at 12%.
