A recent study conducted by local medical group MedLife revealed that the Romanians' COVID-19 vaccination intentions are well below initial expectations, according to a report by Romania-Insider.
Specifically, MedLife's current estimates indicate that only 5 million Romanians will be vaccinated by the end of the year, which means a rate of 27-31% of all persons residing in Romania who are at least 16 years old. Approximately 2 million people are determined to get vaccinated as soon as possible or no later than next month, the same study said. Another 3-4% consider vaccination in 3-6-12 months or more than a year.
"Although initial estimates said that we would have over 10 million people vaccinated by the end of September, it seems that the Romanians' vaccination intentions are well below these expectations. Our study shows that only 5 million Romanians will be vaccinated, and that by the end of the year."
According to the same study, the highest vaccination rate would be registered in urban areas, where it is estimated that around 33-38% of all people who have reached the age of 16 will be vaccinated by the end of the year.
