Over half of Ukrainians not ready to get vaccinated against COVID-19

If the coronavirus vaccine is available in pharmacies, 39% of Ukrainians are ready to get vaccinated against COVID-19 and 56% are not ready to do so, according to a survey conducted by the Rating sociological group on January 14-16, 2021.

At the same time, if the vaccination is free, 43% of respondents are ready to get the vaccine (52% are not ready).

The poll shows that support for free vaccination has fallen in dynamics (55% of respondents supported free vaccination in November). Instead, the number of those willing to be vaccinated with a paid vaccine has slightly increased.

The number of opponents of vaccination is relatively higher among representatives of the middle age group (30-49 years), women, residents of small towns and those who are not afraid of getting sick.

A total of 1,600 respondents aged 18 years and over were interviewed. The poll's margin of error does not exceed 2.4%.

A total of 4,383 new COVID-19 cases were recorded in Ukraine on January 19, bringing the total to 1,172,038.
