As with virtually everything else in this country, your eagerness to get the jab is strongly correlated with whether or not you are a PMC or how you relate to PMCs and their culture.
“It is common to hear about two different demographic groups that are hesitant to receive a Covid-19 vaccination: Republican voters and racial minorities, especially Black and Latino Americans.
The two groups seem to have different motivations. For Republicans, the attitude is connected to a general skepticism of government and science. For Black and Hispanic Americans, it appears to stem from the country’s legacy of providing substandard medical treatment, and sometimes doing outright harm, to minorities.
These ideas all have some truth to them. But they also can obscure the fact that many unvaccinated Republicans and minorities have something in common: They are working class. And there is a huge class gap in vaccination behavior. …“
White working class Republicans are the most jab resistant demographic in the United States. Working class blacks and Hispanics aren’t as excited about “shots in arms” either though.
Note: I think for millions of people it just boils down to seeing those people getting the jab and hating and distrusting those people for entirely valid reasons and being ornery about it. Jab enthusiasm is also strongly correlated with other things like climatarianism.
