Majority of unvaccinated Americans are concerned enough about COVID-19 to wear masks

While 29% of Americans are still unvaccinated, nearly two-thirds of this group (19%) are concerned enough about the spread of COVID-19 to regularly wear a mask, and the No. 1 reason for a large majority of them is concern about family members contracting COVID-19.

A recent poll by a consortium of universities comprised of Northwestern, Northeastern, Harvard and Rutgers, finds 19% of the U.S. population, or approximately 62.6 million people, falls into this unvaccinated, mask-wearing group.
