The agency claims that many Europeans are skeptical about getting inoculated, considering how fast the vaccines were tested and approved.
The surveys held in Poland showed that less than 40 percent of the population were ready to get vaccinated. Only half of the staff of the Warsaw hospital (the first place in Poland where the vaccination campaign began) signed in for vaccination.
45 percent of interviewed Bulgarians claimed they would not be getting inoculated; another 40 said they would wait to make sure that the vaccine has no negative side effects. According to Alpha Research survey, less than one of five Bulgarians from priority-risk groups plan to get vaccinated.
In Sweden, where people show more trust for the government, almost two-thirds of the country's population say 'yes' to inoculation.
A IPSOS survey in 15 countries published on November 5 showed that 54 percent of French people were ready to take the vaccine if it was available at the moment. The index made 64 percent in Italy and Spain, 79 in the UK and 87 percent in China. An IFOP survey that was conducted later showed that only 41 percent of French were ready to get vaccinated.
The mass vaccination campaign kicked off in the EU member countries on December 27. Among the first countries to participate in it are France, Portugal, Germany, Italy, Austria and Spain.
