As India is all out for wider vaccination drive, a recent survey said that more people are now willing to take the shot than earlier. A survey by YouGov said that six of the ten people who responded said that they were ready for the vaccine. In an earlier survey in January, YouGov said that only 33 per cent of the people were willing to take the vaccine shot.
Moreover, the survey found that only 20 per cent of the people said that they would wait for taking the vaccine whereas 41 per cent had said the same in January survey. The YouGov mentions that the government’s handling of the vaccine drive had augmented the willingness of the people to take the vaccine.

About 83 per cent or eight in ten people appreciate the way the government handled the vaccine drive. A less than 13 per cent said that the vaccine drive was not satisfactory.

The survey also noted that only one in sixteen urban Indians (six percent) opined that they do not want vaccination at all. Moreover, one in five or 19 per cent young adults between 18-29 years agree that they should be placed lower on the priority list and must get their shot later than others must.
India recently decided to get all its citizens aged 45 years above vaccinated. They are placed higher in priority for getting the vaccine.
The YouGov survey also noted that respondents with part-time (58 per cent) and full-time jobs (51 per cent) are more likely to believe they should be higher on the priority list than the ones who are not employed (42 per cent).
