Sure. And how does that translate to your statement that 'the largest group of vaccine hesitant are PhD educated'?https://www.medrxiv.org/content/10.1101/2021.07.20.21260795v1.full.pdf
From the study, page 12:
"The large decrease in COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy January-May among those with ≤high school education went a long way towards narrowing the education gap; still this group has a relatively high hesitancy prevalence. Those with professional degrees (e.g., JD, MBA) and PhDs were the only education groups without a decrease in hesitancy, and by May, those with PhDs had the highest hesitancy. To our knowledge, no other study has evaluated education with this level of granularity, which was possible due to our unusually large sample size (>10,000 participants with PhDs)."
Let's take the US as an example. There are about 90 million Americans left who are in the age group where they could have gotten vaccinated, yet have not. For whatever reason.
Are PhDs the largest group? Hell. No. Political conservatives, evangelicals, rurals, whites, those make up some of the largest groups. Quite a few of them in multiple categories. PhDs? Just a sprinkle.
