All congressional Democrats say they have been vaccinated for COVID-19, according to a survey and collection of public responses compiled by CNN.

The survey comes after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released its pivotal guidance saying that fully vaccinated Americans can go without masks in most outdoor and indoor settings.

CNN found that of the 431 House members, 312 reported receiving a vaccination, representing 72 percent of the lower chamber.

All 219 House Democrats have reported getting vaccinated, while 95 of the 212 GOP members have said they’re vaccinated — representing 44.8 percent of the caucus.

But it's unclear exactly how many Republicans have been vaccinated since 112 Republican offices didn’t respond to inquiries from CNN.

Meanwhile, all 50 Senate Democrats are fully vaccinated. By comparison, 46 out of 50 Republicans reported being vaccinated, CNN found.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention still recommends people who have previously recovered from COVID-19 get vaccinated because its unclear how long people are protected from getting sick again after recovering.

Recent has shown that Republicans tend to be more hesitant about getting vaccinated than Democrats and independents.

A poll from Monmouth University found that 43 percent of Republicans surveyed said they wouldn’t get vaccinated, compared with 22 percent of independents and 5 percent of Democrats.

Demand for the vaccine has dropped recently as those who were most eager to get vaccinated already have.

Fifty-eight percent of the population aged 18 and older have received one dose of a coronavirus vaccine, according to the CDC, and 45 percent have been fully vaccinated.
