Most Canadians will accept a vaccine against COVID-19, if he was available, a new survey shows.
The survey, conducted by Research Co., found 75% of Canadians would like to get the vaccine. This figure is slightly higher than when Canadians were polled on the same question in April.
More residents of B. C. said they believe the vaccine, with 80 percent of respondents said “definitely” or “probably” to.
And 15 percent of Canadians said that they were “probably not” or “definitely not” to get the vaccine if it became available. Another 11 percent said they were not sure.
With a B. S. is currently in phase 3 of its plan to restart health officials in the province, is unlikely to go to stage 4, while there is no vaccine or reliable treatment.
In fact, provincial health officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said on Thursday that the virus is here to stay until one of them developed.
“I know some people may think this is over and they can relax and return to normal life, but no effective treatment or vaccine, we know that this virus will circulate in our communities,” she said.
Meanwhile, Canadians continue to take other precautions to protect yourself from COVID-19.
Almost half of Canadians say they wear masks whenever they go out.
“There is a big gap when it comes to the wearing of masks outside the home,” said Mario Canseco, President of the research cooperation., in a press release.
“While more than half of women in Canada (57 per cent) not leaving home without a mask, only 39 percent of the men participating in this behavior.”
Also, about two in five Canadians say they removed any products that they buy, while 23 percent say they are not ordering take-out because they are afraid of contamination.
Learning co.’s results are based on online research conducted from 26 June to 28 June 2019, among 1000 adults in Canada. The margin of error—which measures sample variability is plus or minus 3.1 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
