That's a GREAT chart, PucksFool! It was published by the Kaiser Family Foundation, and they also conducted a survey:

At the beginning of 2021 as vaccine distribution began in the U.S., KFF conducted interviews with a nationally representative sample of adults using open-ended questions to better understand public concerns around receiving a COVID-19 vaccine. Six months later, we recontacted these individuals to find out whether they chose to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, their reasoning behind their decisions, and how they are feeling about their choice.

Many of these individuals noted the role of their friends and family members as well as their personal doctors in persuading them to get a vaccine. Seeing their friends and family members get vaccinated without serious side effects, talking to family members about being able to safely visit, and conversations with their personal doctors about their own risks were all persuasive factors for these individuals. A small but meaningful share also say the easing of restrictions for vaccinated people was a factor in their decision to get a vaccine.

As I said in a previous post, I get frustrated and angry when I see so many people refusing to get vaccinated. But negative feelings are probably not a good way to approach this. Instead, we need to seek ways to persuade the reluctant people, be they Repubs or Dems, Blacks or Whites, religious or atheists, to get the vaccine.
