Why Some Poles Do Not Want the Covid-19 Vaccination

Almost two thirds of Polish adults have a positive attitude towards Covid-19 vaccination. Over a third have already received at least one dose, while another third say they want to be vaccinated. However, a quarter of those surveyed are currently not intending to have the jab, and the main reason for this reluctance is anxiety about side effects (61%), with doubts about the vaccine’s effectiveness in second place (31%). It should be noted, though, that both these reasons are less frequently given now, than when people were asked previously, in March. On the other hand, more respondents than two months ago express a general mistrust of vaccination as justification of their attitude towards this one (18%). Relatively few of those asked are declining the vaccination because they believe Covid-19 is not a serious illness (13%) or because they have already had it (13%).

More on this subject in the CBOS report.
This ‘Current Events and Problems’ survey (372) 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 6 – 16 May 2021 inclusive on a sample of 1163 people (54.8% using the CAPI method, 30% CATI and 15.2% 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.
