Millennials, Gen Zers are cutting ties with unvaccinated, creating own vaccine mandates
About one-third of Millennials and Gen Zers have cut ties with friends, family members or acquaintances who will not get the COVID-19 vaccine.
This is according to a survey from Axios and The Harris Poll. They surveyed 1,334 U.S. adults in August 2021 and categorized them by generation.
The survey results show:
- 33% of Millennials say they have cuts ties with somebody in their life over not getting vaccinated against COVID-19
- 30% of Gen Zers, 9% of Gen Xers and 7% of Baby Boomers say the same
“It’s the new cultural dividing line,” John Gerzema, CEO of The Harris Poll, told Axios. “Three in 10 Gen Zers, and even more millennials, have ghosted friends who would not get vaccinated.”
