The proportion of Hungarians who now have firm plans to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or have already been vaccinated stands at 46.4%, a weekly survey by the Central Statistical Office (KSH) that finished on March 7 shows, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The rate is up from just 15% when KSH started conducting the surveys in the first week of December.

The latest survey shows a little less than 24% of Hungarians say they "may" get inoculated, while 24% say they won't get a jab.

Some 73% of Hungarians between 65 and 74 say they plan to be vaccinated or have already received their first vaccine shot.
