Novel coronavirus pneumonia is definitely only accepted by half of the British population, according to the guardian website reported on August 9th.
according to the report, a group of scientists and pollsters found that only 53% of the citizens interviewed said that if there was a vaccine available, they would definitely or very likely be vaccinated.
by contrast, one in six people (16%) said they would never, or are unlikely to, receive a vaccine, according to a study by King’s College London and Ipsos. In addition, the study found that one in five (20%) said they were only “quite likely” to be vaccinated.
this study found novel coronavirus pneumonia among people who are more sceptical and less worried about the impact of the new coronavirus pneumonia. People who are often reluctant to wear masks and say they get most of the information about the disease from WhatsApp and other social media are also likely to refuse.
according to the report, 22% of people aged 16-24 and 25-34 said they would be unlikely or absolutely not to receive the vaccine, compared with 11% in the 55-75 age group.
the trends revealed by the study, based on 2237 online interviews with British residents aged 16 to 75 in mid July, have raised concerns among scientists. “Misconceptions about vaccines are our most direct and harmful views, and they are clearly influencing people’s intentions during the coronavirus crisis,” said Professor Bobbie Duffy, head of the Policy Research Institute at King’s college, University of London, who led the study
novel coronavirus pneumonitis vaccine is a potential vaccine for the new coronavirus pneumonia, although 1/6 of the people in the UK say they are unlikely or will never accept the vaccine. However, in some groups, this proportion has increased to 1/3 or more. This is obviously related to the belief in conspiracy theory and distrust of the government, authority and science.
this is supported by Gideon Skinner, research director of Ipsos group. “Nearly a quarter of people aged 16 to 34 say they are unlikely to be vaccinated if there is a vaccine available. This is deeply worrying and should be an important part of the government’s efforts to eliminate misconceptions about vaccination, especially among young people. ” (compiler / Yin Xia)
