michelle kingston kron 4 news. >>the first possible vaccine is set to begin final stage testing next week. the study will involve 30,000 people to see of the covid vaccine is safe and effective doctor anthony fauci from the white house task force says that people should get vaccinated as soon as one is available and approved brian todd, those says that many state people might still refuse it. >>it's what millions of us have been hanging our hopes on to get past this crushing pandemic to return to work to school to go back to our favorite restaurants and bars to workout at the gym. a deployable vaccine for coronavirus which experts say could arrive late this year or early next. but experts are now worried that when it comes many americans will reject the vaccine already surveys are showing us in nearly half of people. >>are not inclined to take a covid-19 vaccine, even if it was available today. but a shocking number and it's
8:34 am
deeply concerning. >>in may one poll from the associated press and the n o r c center for public affairs research showed only about half of americans said they get the vaccine. 20% said they wouldn't 31% weren't sure other polls from cnn and the washington post and abc news showed about two-thirds of americans said they would get the vaccine. still experts are worried about any significant numbers of people rejecting the vaccine if it's a large percent choose not to get back say that we would never get herd. immunity. experts say there are several reasons that people don't trust a potential coronavirus vaccine a lot of people are going to the very idea of getting it because they've been told for months years now not to trust x pets until recently president trump went against the advice of his own task force experts and rejected mask-wearing. >>and during the pandemic he's questioned the guidance of america's top scientists on reopening the country doctor fauci has made some mistakes a little bit of an alarmist but
8:35 am
the mistrust of a vaccine can not be placed only at the president's feet. experts say the very name of the project to push the vaccine through fuel skepticism. i think when people hear the term work speed the assume that steps are being skip skip they assume that there are corners are being cut and therefore there this may be vaccine because to be made so quickly it's less than optimal they have the poor safety qualities or were affected this column's doctors acknowledge the vaccine likely won't be a magic bullet for coronavirus that even after it comes out it could be several months before we know how effective it is. >>but they have a simple stark message for those who are rejecting it the choice not to get a vaccine is a choice to take the real and very serious risk of being infe ted by this virus and students suffer under be hospitalized or die from this virus. >>doctor paul offit says a crucial part of this vaccine program is for the president to task force any leaders involved in this to be as transparent as possible with
8:36 am
the public about the vaccine even before it rolls out, and that means being honest with americans about what our leaders know and don't know about the vaccine every step of the way. brian todd, cnn, washington. >>doctor is in facing criticism from president trump but he does not plan to resign from the task force. >>you put aside even considering resigning from the task force right. >>oh definitely i'm not even thinking about that responding to recent criticism from some federal leaders, including president donald trump doctor anthony fauci says he remains focused on helping the world through the coronavirus pandemic that's kind of noise just gets in the way of the common job that we have and the common goal that we want to reach is just unfortunate that some people have made those kinds of remarks that are really not founded in any reality at all the nation's top infectious disease expert is encouraged by recent results from 2 possible vaccines still being tested in
8:37 am
trials obviously we need to do more studies with more people. but i'm a i'm actually heartened by what i'm seeing that more than one candidate appears to be inducing the kinds of responses that favorably might you know a degree of optimism about whether or not they're going to be able to block infection. fauci says the recent surge in cases may have come from some states that open too quickly. he believes some should consider taking a step back but above all he's encouraging personal responsibility. he says while young people may be less likely to get seriously ill they can still spread the virus to others tonight, there's continued calls to wear a mask and social distance this is going to end, but it's going to be up to us. >>it's not good and spontaneously we've got to do the things that are necessary to put a stop to this. >>that was michael clarke reporting and you can watch the full interview with fauci on our website kron 4 dot com. >>well new this morning we have oakland city council
