Just 30% of Americans are worried about contracting COVID-19, the lowest fear level recorded by Gallup since the survey firm began tracking the pandemic in April 2020, and 69% of Americans said the pandemic was getting “better” in the U.S. as more Americans get vaccinated and states begin reopening parts of the economy. The new Gallup survey concluded that those who were fully or partially vaccinated were more worried about contracting COVID than those who don’t plan to get vaccinated. One-third of fully or partially vaccinated Americans fear contracting COVID, while 13% of adults who don’t plan to get vaccinated say the same. U.S. adults are slightly less optimistic about the country’s pandemic situation than they were in March, when 77% of adults said the country was doing “a lot” or “a little” better.
