Poll: Some 25% of Israelis who haven’t vaccinated have no intention of doing so

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.
