Americans are creating their own COVID-19 vaccine mandates.
According to new data from The Harris Poll, at least 30% of Millennials or Gen Zers in the U.S. say they have cut ties with a friend, family member or acquaintance because they wouldn’t get the COVID-19 vaccine.
The poll, which was provided first to Axios, surveyed 1,334 U.S. adults in August 2021, and categorized them by generation.
The poll shows that 33% of millennials say they have cuts ties with somebody in their life over not getting vaccinated against COVID-19, compared with 30% of Gen Zers, 9% of Gen Xers and 7% of baby boomers.
“It’s the new cultural dividing line,” John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, told Axios.
