Q. The Covid-19 vaccine rollout has begun in Australia.
Once a vaccine becomes available to you, how long would you wait before taking it?
|I’d get vaccinated as soon as possible / I’ve already been vaccinated||50%||42%||43%||56%|
|I’d get vaccinated, but wouldn’t do it straight away||40%||47%||46%||35%|
|I’d never get vaccinated||10%||11%||10%||8%|
- With the launch of the Covid-19 vaccine nationwide rollout last week, about half (50%) now say they would get vaccinated as soon as possible – a noticeable rise from the 42% in January. Correspondingly, fewer people now say that would get vaccinated but not straight away (40% to 47% in January).
- 1 in 10 say that would never get vaccinated, consistent with levels seen in the last few months.
