We surveyed infectious disease specialists about early COVID-19 vaccination preparedness. Almost all respondents' institutions rated their facility's preparedness plan as either excellent or adequate. Vaccine hesitancy and concern about adverse reactions were the most common anticipated barriers to COVID-19 vaccination. Only 60% believed currently that COVID-19 vaccination should be mandatory.
