The ratio of Hungarians who have firm plans to get vaccinated against COVID-19 or have already received their first jab stands at 52%, a weekly survey by the Central Statistical Office (KSH) shows, according to a report by state news wire MTI.

The rate for the week ended March 21 is up from just 15% when KSH started conducting the surveys in the first week of December.

The latest survey shows 21% of Hungarians say they "may" get inoculated, while another 21% say they won't get a jab.

Close to 84% of Hungarians between 65 and 74 say they plan to be vaccinated or have already received their first jab.
