Number of vaccinated US travelers continues to grow

According to the latest Longwoods International tracking study of American travelers, a majority of American travelers now have some level of vaccination with 57% now fully vaccinated, up from 42% on April 14.

However, there is still some vaccine hesitancy with 19% saying they have no intention of getting a vaccine, while 10% are still unsure if they will or not.

"With the threat of more potent Covid-19 variants, it's encouraging to see travelers generally embracing vaccines as a way to get back to a normal life, including travel," said Amir Eylon, President and CEO of Longwoods International. "

"For the tourism industry and the entire country, the hope is that enough of the public will be vaccinated this summer to prevent any public health setbacks in the fall and winter."

Despite labor shortages in some areas and the challenges of ramping up operations, most travelers are satisfied with the service they received on their recent trips, with 49% reporting service levels comparable to their pre-pandemic experiences and 27% said they experienced even better service.

However, nearly one quarter of travelers said they experienced worse service than in the past.

The survey is supported by Miles Partnership and was conducted on July 7, 2021 using a national sample randomly drawn from a consumer panel of 1,000 adults, ages 18 and over.
