About 1 in 5 U.S. adults said they would not get a vaccine to protect against the coronavirus, according to a Monmouth University poll released last week.

Concerns about vaccine hesitancy have grown after federal officials recommended a pause in the administration of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine due to instances of rare blood clots among a handful of recipients.

Several celebrities and high-profile political figures have used their platforms to encourage vaccinations. Former President Obama appeared virtually alongside former NBA stars Shaquille O'Neal and Charles Barkley in a TV special last weekend to encourage communities of color and young people to get their shots. Dolly Parton, Steve Martin and Samuel L. Jackson have also been among the many entertainers who have taken to social media to urge their fans to get vaccinated.
