Survey: The majority of the unvaccinated want to remain unvaccinated
According to a survey, a large majority of the unvaccinated will probably no longer be convinced of immunization against the coronavirus in the coming weeks. In the largest survey of unvaccinated people to date by the opinion research institute Forsa on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Health, two thirds (65 percent) of the approximately 3,000 participants stated that they would “under no circumstances” be vaccinated in the next two months, reports the “RedaktionsNetzwerk Deutschland”. Accordingly, 23 percent tended to “rather no”. Only two percent of those questioned wanted to be vaccinated “in any case”. The remaining ten percent would have expressed themselves rather indecisively or considered a later vaccination “more likely” possible.
