Four survey findings:

1. Forty-three percent of repsondents said they would definitely get a COVID-19 vaccine, while 28 percent said they probably would.

2. Fifty-seven percent of respondents said it was more important to control the pandemic's spread, even if it hurts the economy.

5. Forty-two percent said they personally knew someone diagnosed with COVID-19, up 11 percent from late March.
