The latest CDC data shows more than 38 million people in the U.S. have gotten one or more doses of the COVID-19 vaccine.

However, new research shows some people still want to wait to get their shot.

According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, 31% of the public say they plan to wait to see how the vaccine is working for other people before getting the shot.
