GLOBAL VACCINE TRACKING
Across the Globe, Rates of Vaccine Skepticism Have Stalled
BY PEYTON SHELBURNE | UPDATED: JANUARY 13, 2022
Morning Consult is conducting over 75,000 weekly interviews across the globe on the COVID-19 vaccine rollout, providing deep insights at a granular level into which countries are most and least opposed to vaccinations, and what factors are driving skepticism. The latest data is based on surveys conducted in 15 countries between January 04 – 10, 2022, with 52,222 interviews in the United States and between 2,374 to 6,182 interviews in the other 14 countries. Updates will be provided monthly. Get alerts with the latest data.
In order to gauge vaccination rates and interest, Morning Consult asked adults in each country “Have you gotten the vaccine, or not?” Respondents could reply “Yes,” “No, but I will get it in the future,” “No, and I am not sure if I will get it in the future,” or “No, and I do not plan to get it.”
*Note: In India, the sample is representative of just the literate population.
Weekly tracking: Over the past 3 months, rates of vaccine skepticism across the globe have remained relatively stable, declining only by an average of 2 percentage points. Since tracking began, the share of vaccine skeptics has fallen by 6 points in the United States and by an average of 19 points in the other 14 countries.
The share of adults in each country who are unwilling to get vaccinated or are uncertain:
In a given week, Morning Consult conducts around 30,000 interviews in the United States and between 2,000 to 5,00 surveys in each other country on the vaccine rollout, among nationally representative samples of adults. (In India, the sample is representative of the literate population). All interviews are conducted online.
Surveys are weighted in each country by age, gender, region, and, in certain countries, education breakdowns based on official government sources. In the United States, surveys are also weighted by race and ethnicity.
Respondents complete these surveys in languages appropriate for their countries. Professional translation firms in each country conduct the translation and localization.
