Survey says more people willing to be vaccinated for COVID-19 virus

To the Editor:

Willingness to get vaccinated for the COVID-19 virus is increasing in Prince Edward County.

On Nov. 22, I polled the members of the Facebook group Prince Edward County Unmanageables regarding their interest in getting vaccinated. I repeated the poll on Dec. 21 to see how attitudes have changed.

There were 163 responses to the Nov 22 poll, a 10 per cent response rate from the group’s 1.6K members. I tabulated the results to the Dec. 21 poll after two days and 164 responses.

Here’s the question I asked and the percentage responses each time:

When the Covid-19 vaccine becomes available, how will you respond?
Nov 22         Dec 21
* First in line                   47%              61%
* Wait and see                 34%              29%
* Not for me                     19%               10%

The results are encouraging. With time to get used to the idea, and more information about its safety and efficacy, it’s not surprising that more people are willing to get vaccinated, and fewer are inclined to decline.
