In September, a poll conducted by the KFF COVID-19 Vaccine Monitor suggested that nearly twice as many adults said they planned to get the vaccine. According to that poll, 23% of adults said they were "definitely" planning on getting the updated booster, while another 23% said they would "probably" get one. The latest vaccine targets variants currently in circulation, which are an offshoot of the Omicron variant known as XBB.
