Covid Watch: Large majority of respondents to our survey want a Covid-19 jab as soon as it is offered

They are two of the most important questions of our time. How well informed are people about Covid-19 vaccine? Would they accept a vaccination when it is offered? Two weeks ago, we launched an online survey to test local opinion. More than 650 people responded. The results are strongly in favour of vaccination. More than four in five respondents said they would accept a vaccination as soon as it is offered. A smaller number said they would wait until more information is available. Only one in twenty people would reject a Covid-19 vaccination at any point. The survey also shows that there is still a lot of work to do in explaining Covid vaccines, especially to those under 45 years old.
