According to the survey, 12% of respondents were vaccinated with one dose, and 43% with two doses.
At the same time, 24% of respondents have not been vaccinated against COVID-19 and do not plan to do so, and the most popular reasons for such views are mistrust of the COVID-19 vaccine (20%), the opinion that the vaccine is not well researched (14%) and the opinion about the dangers of the vaccine (11%).
A total of 5.6% of respondents stated contraindications to vaccination, 4.9% of respondents did not believe in vaccination in general.
Some 41% of respondents plan to be vaccinated against COVID-19 next year, and 24% do not.
