MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama’s top health official says a study found that about 30% of adults in the state are hesitant to take the COVID-19 vaccine.

The Alabama Department of Public Health on Friday released the results of the survey done to gauge the vaccine hesitancy.

State Health Officer Scott Harris said the hesitancy cuts across racial lines. He said the reasons vary from people who are staunchly against vaccinations to people who just have questions.
