Results from a new global survey released today show more than half of those who are unvaccinated in 50+ countries indicated they definitely or probably won’t get a COVID-19 vaccine.
Key reasons for hesitation, according to August 16–31 results from the survey, include:
- Fears about side effects
- A desire to ‘wait and see’ until more people are vaccinated
- Lack of confidence in vaccines’ effectiveness
The latest survey results are in a new dashboard, produced in collaboration by the Johns Hopkins Center for Communication Programs, Facebook and WHO’s Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network, is powered by data from 12 million+ people from 115 countries.
Data snapshot: In many countries, large percentages of the population say they would choose to get their children vaccinated once a shot becomes available.
- India and Guatemala: Over 90%
- Mozambique: 86%
- US: 72%
- Serbia: 47%
The survey—thought to be the world’s largest daily survey of global COVID knowledge, attitudes and practices—is releasing new data every 2 weeks.
