According to a study by, 55% of vaccinated Michiganders say that going forward, they will be avoiding contact with friends and colleagues who have chosen not to be vaccinated.

Michigan’s average is above the national average of 48%.

The averages were found to be highest in Maryland with 65% of Marylanders saying they will avoid mixing with nonvaccinated people once lockdowns are fully lifted. Idaho had the lowest average at 11%.

The survey also found that 37% of respondents agree with the principle of incentives to encourage people to get vaccinated.

Additional results showed that 2 in 5 people who have been vaccinated would be prepared to pause friendships if they discovered some friends refused to be vaccinated.

Over 1 in 3 respondents think unvaccinated people should be required to sit separately on public transport facilities, such as buses and trains.

Half of those who took the survey think public venues such as gyms, movie theaters and concerts should have separate opening hours for unvaccinated people to reduce mixing between those who are vaccinated and those who are nonvaccinated.
