COVID-19 vaccine a ‘political football’ in United States

Sky News host James Morrow says the coronavirus vaccine has become a political football in the United States, which is part of why surveys show half of Americans would choose not to take a vaccine for COVID-19 were it made available.

“The fact that it’s become such political football has got this whole thing very much on the nose with a lot of people,” Mr Morrow told Sky News host Paul Murray.

“Also … most people know that for them, if they are under say fifty years old, they don’t have some underlying health conditions, they probably aren’t vulnerable to this.

“I think a lot of people are doing those sorts of risk assessments, I think Americans are generally better at those sorts of risk assessments than we are here.”
