New Ipsos-World Economic Forum global survey highlights the increasing demand for COVID-19 vaccines and diverging views on whether vaccination should be mandatory

A new Ipsos survey conducted in partnership with the World Economic Forum in 15 countries points to a general uptick in COVID-19 vaccine intent across the world, compared to six weeks ago. The global survey of adults under the age of 75, conducted on January 28-31, 2021, on Ipsos’ Global Advisor online platform, also finds:

  • Widespread demand for getting vaccinated as soon as possible;
  • A lack of consensus on whether the COVID-19 vaccine should be mandatory across countries; and
  • Concern about the side effects and the speed of clinical trials to be the leading causes of vaccine hesitancy.

In Great Britain

  • Almost 9 in 10 (89%) of Britons say they would take the vaccine if it was available to them, making them most likely to accept it;
  • Seven in 10 (69%) would want to get the vaccine as soon as it was made available to them, a further 10% would want it within one month of it becoming available to them;
  • Among those who say they are unlikely to take the vaccine, a third are worried about side effects (32%) and the speed at which the vaccine moved through clinical trials (33%);
  • Over half of Britons support vaccinations against COVID-19 becoming mandatory for all those aged over-18 while a third oppose this measure.
