Number of adults who oppose COVID-19 vaccine at new low, poll finds 

The number of Americans strongly opposed to getting a COVID-19 vaccine is at the lowest level seen since the vaccines were released, according to latest findings from the Axios/Ipsos Coronavirus Index.

Each week since March 2020, Axios/Ipsos has polled a nationally representative group of U.S. adults about the pandemic. The latest iteration included 1,071 adults polled from Aug. 27-30.

1. Only 20 percent of Americans said they are not likely to get the vaccine, representing the lowest figure since the survey's creation. This figure peaked at 63 percent last September.

2. The percentage of adults who said they are not at all likely to get vaccinated also fell to 14 percent.

3. In the last week, the number of parents who say they'll likely get their kids vaccinated has also increased. About 68 percent said they would or already have vaccinated their children. 

4. Thirty-one percent said they were not likely to get their kids vaccinated, down from 43 percent who said the same between Aug. 13-16.
