Study Shows Americans Are More Comfortable Hanging With Unvaxxed People Than Canadians Are

Americans and Canadians shared their comfort level with different activities.

A new study by Leger asked Americans and Canadians how comfortable they were participating in a range of activities knowing that people who have not received COVID-19 vaccines may be present. As it turns out, Americans appear to be more comfortable socializing with unvaccinated people than Canadians are.

In each of the categories, people who normally participate in each activity gauged their comfort levels.


When it comes to attending outdoor gatherings with family and friends, 73% of Canadian respondents who would normally do this said that they'd be comfortable and 76% of American respondents said the same.

For eating on a patio at a restaurant, 72% of Canadians and 75% of Americans would be fine with it. As for going to the workplace where unvaccinated colleagues might also be there, only 56% of Canadians and 66% of Americans would feel comfortable.

For airplane travel, 37% of respondents from Canada and 51% of respondents from the U.S. who normally fly said they'd be okay with getting on a plane with the potential for unvaccinated people on board.

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines and can answer any questions you may have.
