Majority of Poles against Russian, Chinese vaccines

World

The vast majority of Poles do not want the government to buy COVID-19 vaccines from China or Russia, results of a recent poll show, according to a report by Polish news agency PAP.

Only 19% of respondents said that the government should buy the Russian vaccine and 26% were in favor of purchasing the Chinese one. Virologist prof. Wlodzimierz Gut told Super Express that these "vaccines meet international requirements," and are based on the same factors, but the ways of obtaining them are different, adding that "unfortunately, Poles have Russophobia and bad experiences because of sellers who import the worst products from China, including medicines".

The survey was carried out on March 3-4 by Pollster Research Centre for the Super Express tabloid on a sample of 1,033 adult Poles.
