More and More Poles Want the Jab

Over the last two months there has been a distinct shift in Polish people’s attitude to the Covid-19 vaccination. Last November respondents declaring they wanted to be immunised were in the minority (36%) while now over half of those surveyed (56%) say they intend to be vaccinated.

Attitudes to the Covid-19 vaccination are largely dependent on age, with a greater number of older people saying they want to get vaccinated. A decided majority of over-65s (74%) are for it, compared to only 37% of the youngest group, the 18-24 year-olds.
The main disincentive to vaccination is fear of the side effects of a vaccine that is new (78%), followed by doubts concerning its effectiveness (35%).
More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (368) was conducted using a mixed-mode procedure on a representative sample of named adult residents of Poland, randomly selected from the National Identity Number (PESEL) register.
Respondents independently selected one of the following methods:
– Computer Assisted Personal Interview (CAPI);
– Computer Assisted Telephone Interview (CATI), respondents receiving researchers’ telephone numbers in an introductory letter from CBOS;
– Computer Assisted Web Interview (CAWI), where respondents filled in the online questionnaire independently, gaining access by means of a login and password provided in an introductory letter from CBOS.
In all three cases the questionnaire had the same structure and comprised the same questions. The survey was carried out between 4 and 14 January 2021 inclusive on a sample of 1150 people (44.1% using the CAPI method, 42.8% CATI and 13.1% CAWI).
CBOS has been conducting statutory research using the above procedure since May 2020, stating in each case the percentage of personal, telephone and internet interviews.
