Two thirds of Germans are ready to be vaccinated against COVID-19
At the same time, half of those surveyed are concerned about the side effects.
Almost two-thirds of Germans say they are ready to be vaccinated against COVID-19 and only one in three have serious concerns about it. This is the result of a study carried out by YouGov based on a survey of the country’s inhabitants.
Moreover, one third of citizens of Germany believe in vaccination so much that they want to get a dose of vaccine as soon as possible and are ready to undergo the procedure right now. Another 33% have confirmed their willingness to be vaccinated, but a little later – to have time to observe how the shot will affect the health and well-being of others.
Almost 20% are categorically reluctant to be vaccinated, and 16% of citizens are still thinking about it.
At the same time, more than half of the Germans, even those who are ready to be vaccinated, are afraid of the side effects and the negative effects of the vaccine on their health later on. At the same time, a third of those surveyed said that they were not worried about such risks.
It is also noteworthy that elderly people are more willing to be vaccinated, at over 71%, while young people are sceptical, with only 54% willing to take the shot.
