More than half of Romanians (55.2%) plan to get vaccinated against COVID-19 this year, but a significant share of 39.4% do not intend to do so, and 5.4% have not decided or refused to answer, Romania-insider reports, citing a survey conducted by INSCOP.
Romania's government aims at a 70% vaccination rate (10.4 million people vaccinated) among the adult population by September. So far, the vaccination program's pace has been constrained rather by the availability of vaccines than by the people's reluctance.
The main reasons given by those who do not intend to be vaccinated are the fear of possible side effects - 30.9%, distrust in the effectiveness of serum - 26.8%, and insufficient information about anti-COVID-19 immunization - 14.7%.
