A greater share of the American public wants to get a Covid-19 vaccine as soon as possible compared with those surveyed in December, a new poll found.

Almost half of 1,563 adults surveyed expressed enthusiasm for getting the vaccine, up from 34% last month, according to a survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation. The share increased among Black, Hispanic and White adults.
