A study conducted by the Levada Institute on Wednesday showed that most Russians are not afraid of the covida-19 vaccine and do not want to be vaccinated.
According to a survey conducted in April, 62% of respondents were not prepared to receive the Sputnik V vaccine developed by the Gamaleya Institute of Science. It is the core of the population immunization policy.
This percentage of people was also resistant to vaccination in February, but the number of people willing to be vaccinated has declined. In February, 30% was used for vaccination, and in April, it was 26%.
10% of them said they had been vaccinated.
At the same time, 56% of Russians are not afraid of contracting the new coronavirus, the same as in February, but much more than in December last year, when 41% of Russians said they were not afraid of covida-19.
Therefore, although Russia is the first country in the world to approve the covid-19 vaccine, its vaccination activities are still lagging behind.
Russia approved the use of artificial satellite V in August 2020.
So far, 10 million people have been vaccinated with the two doses of the vaccine, and 14 million people have been vaccinated with the first dose.
Russia, with a population of more than 146 million, has developed four vaccines so far, and a single-dose “lighter” version of Sputnik V should be launched on the market soon.
The Russian Statistics Agency (Rosstat) announced that the pandemic has claimed approximately 250,000 lives.
