More Farmers Plan to get COVID-19 Vaccine

A question in the recent Purdue/CME Group Ag Economy Barometer finds more farmers say they will get the COVID-19 vaccine. The Ag Economy Barometer for January, released this week, finds producers’ attitudes about receiving a COVID-19 vaccine have shifted since the fall, with 58% planning to get vaccinated as soon as possible.

Conversely just 24% of producers said the same in October. However that still leaves 28% of farmers say they will not get the vaccine.

Last month, the Kaiser Family Foundation COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor reported three in ten people in rural areas say they will “definitely get” the vaccine, compared to four in ten people in urban areas and suburban areas.
