According to a new poll, more than 30 percent of unvaccinated workers stated they would quit if they were obliged to get a COVID-19 vaccine.
The Kaiser Family Foundation (KFF) study indicated that 37% of workers who are currently immunized against the novel coronavirus claimed they would quit if their company compelled them to acquire a COVID-19 vaccine or undergo weekly testing.
According to the poll, 46 percent would prefer to undergo weekly COVID-19 testing than receive the vaccine, while only 11 percent said they would get immunized against the unique virus if their employment required it.
The poll also questioned respondents what they would do if their employment compelled them to obtain a vaccine but did not include the option of weekly testing instead. When offered this issue, 72 percent of respondents stated they would quit their jobs, while 17 percent said they would get the vaccine.
President Joe Biden announced a COVID-19 vaccine mandate for enterprises jobs with more than 100 employees in September. If the personnel choose not to receive the COVID-19 vaccine, they might be tested on a weekly basis.
Some states and cities have mandated COVID-19 vaccinations for workers. Washington Governor Jay Inslee previously enacted one of the nation’s strongest COVID-19 vaccine mandates, since it does not allow for the option of weekly COVID-19 testing in lieu of vaccination.
October 19 was the deadline for Washington’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate and shortly after the Washington State Patrol announced that 127 employees “separated from employment due to the mandate.”
While there have been several tales of people abandoning their employment due to vaccine mandates, according to the KFF poll, just 5% of unvaccinated workers have left their positions due to a COVID-19 vaccine obligation. According to the poll, this accounts for only 1% of all adults in the United States.
According to the research, just 25% of respondents claimed their workplace needed a COVID-19 immunization. According to the poll, 21% of respondents want their employers to require a COVID-19 vaccine, while 51% disapprove.
The KFF poll, conducted from October 14 to October 24, polled 1,519 U.S. adults and had a margin of error of plus or minus 3 percentage points. According to CDC data, at least 66 percent of Americans eligible for a vaccine have received at least one dosage, with 57.5 percent considered completely immunized against the new coronavirus.
