New poll suggests Americans are concerned COVID-19 vaccine will be rushed by political pressure


(NBC) -- A new poll suggests over half of Americans would not get a free coronavirus vaccine if one comes out before Election Day.

Researchers from the Kaiser Family Foundation polled nearly 1,200 adults.

Over 60% were concerned that the FDA would rush to approve a vaccine without making sure it is safe due to political pressure from the Trump administration.

While most did not think a vaccine would be widely available before the presidential election, 54% said they would not want to get vaccinated if one were to be approved and made freely available before November 3.
