Two universities recently decided to determine if education played any role in a person’s hesitancy to get the COVID vaccine.
Of course, many on the left are suggesting that it is the uneducated, and typically throw evangelicals into this group, are the ones avoiding vaccines.
Well, a study, conducted by the University of Pittsburgh and Carnegie Mellon University, came to a slightly different conclusion.
In their review of survey data of over five million people conducted between January and May 2021, they concluded, based on education, that those with Ph.D.’s were actually the ones showing the most hesitancy about COVID vaccinations.
The Blaze adds that the researchers provided a ranking of the most hesitant to receiving a vaccine to the least hesitant, with Ph.D.’s topping the list:
- High school or less
- Some college
Citing WebMD, the Blaze stated that the survey revealed that across all groups, 50% of those who expressed hesitancy about vaccines were concerned about their side effects and often added they were taking a wait and see approach on the safety of the vaccines.
