Channel 12 polls Israelis who have not vaccinated on why they have not done so.
Of the respondents, who were allowed to give more than one answer, 41% said they fear possible side effects; 30% are not sure the vaccine is effective; 27% will vaccinate soon; 10% cited information on social media and 4% said the incentives are insufficient.
About 25% said they had no intention of vaccinating.
Asked if the planned limitations on access to various activities to those who don’t vaccinate may persuade them to get the shots, 46% said no, 31% said yes and 23% said they don’t know.
The survey was conducted as part of a larger poll on Israelis’ political views (see previous post), which was carried out among 503 adults who are a representative sample of the Israeli population, with a margin of error of 4.4%.
However, it was not made clear how many of those queried constituted the unvaccinated group.
