YouGov poll has found that the majority of Americans who consider themselves fully vaccinated are still wearing face masks, even outdoors.

The survey noted that 56 percent of all people, vaccinated or not, still wear masks “always” or “most of the time”.

When split along political lines, the poll found that a whopping 78 percent of Democrats say they wear a mask outside their home, while 55 percent of independents and 35 percent of Republicans claimed they are still wearing masks.

Among those who consider themselves fully vaccinated, 65 percent say they wear a mask outside the home always or most of the time, while just 43 percent of the unvaccinated say they wear the masks.

Among the unvaccinated, 57 percent said they never wear a mask or only do so “some of the time.” 

The survey noted that 48 percent overall believe masks should be mandatory, with 78 percent of Democrats holding that belief, but only 20 percent of Republicans doing so.

The poll also found that 52 percent of respondents overall are “worried” that the vaccine doesn’t work, incorporating 17 percent who are “very” worried.

Only around a third said they are “not worried.”  

Among the fully vaccinated, 57 percent said they are worried about the efficacy of the jab waning over time.

The findings come at the same time as revelations that Florida, which never put a mask mandate in place, now has is the lowest daily average of COVID cases in the country.
