62 percent say unvaccinated people shouldn't be able to fly in airplanes

Sixty-two percent of Americans think that unvaccinated people shouldn’t be allowed to travel on airplanes, according to a new Reuters poll.

The poll also found that 55 percent of Americans think unvaccinated people shouldn’t be able to work out in public gyms, go to a movie theater, or go to a concert.

Reuters polled 1,005 people on Monday and Tuesday. Fifty-four percent of respondents said they were “very interested” in getting the COVID-19 vaccine and 27 percent said they were not interested in getting it.


As of Friday, 18 percent of Americans received at least the first dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, and President BidenJoe Biden28 Senate Democrats sign statement urging Israel-Hamas ceasefire Franklin Graham says Trump comeback would 'be a very tough thing to do' Schools face new pressures to reopen for in-person learning MORE has said all adults will be able to receive a vaccine by May.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced last week it was not changing its travel recommendations for both vaccinated and unvaccinated people. The CDC still recommends that all Americans still shouldn’t travel.

The airline industry in response stressed its efforts to prevent coronavirus transmission aboard aircraft and its confidence that its approach is safe. Biden early in his term made mask wearing during air travel a federal mandate, rather than a requirement from U.S. airlines.
