February 20, 2021 - 7:18 am

The COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor finds a gender difference among Black adults in the level of concern about certain aspects of the COVID-19 vaccine. While large shares of Black men share the concerns Black women have about long term effects of the vaccine, safety and effectiveness, larger shares of Black women than Black men say they are concerned they might experience serious side effects (87% vs. 61%) or that they might get COVID-19 from the vaccine (68% vs. 38%), indicating that there may be a greater need for messaging and information to address these concerns among Black women in particular.
