Poll: Americans say J&J pause was the right call

Driving the news: In our weekly national survey, 91% of respondents were aware of the temporary pause recommended by the Food and Drug Administration and the Centers for Disease for Control and Prevention. Of those, 88% said the pause was a responsible decision...

Why it matters: Some officials have expressed concern that the handling of the pause could needlessly scare some Americans from getting vaccinated and make it harder to reach the vaccination levels needed to get the virus under control.

But the survey finds no indication of this yet. Asked how likely they are to get the first generation vaccine as soon as it's available, 30 percent said they're not likely to — the same share that has said so for the last month, and far lower than the peak of 63% last September.
