The majority of Japanese intend to be vaccinated against coronavirus, 27% do not want to.


At least 63% of Japanese said they want to get vaccinated against the coronavirus, due to begin in the country in February. This is evidenced by the data published on Sunday sociological survey conducted by the agency Kyodo.

At the same time, 27.4% said they did not want to be vaccinated. According to a public opinion survey, more than 82% of those surveyed expressed concern about whether the vaccination process in Japan could go smoothly. Only 14.7% of respondents believe that the campaign will go according to plan.

Vaccination in Japan is expected to begin in the second half of February and will take place in several stages. First of all, it will affect about 4 million medical and social workers who most often communicate with the sick. In the second phase, about 36 million people over 65 years of age will be vaccinated. The campaign will then expand to Japan's 8.2 million people with chronic diseases, and only by May will the remaining categories of citizens be able to receive vaccines.

Last year, Japan signed agreements to supply vaccines against COVID-19 with the American pharmaceutical company Pfizer ( Pfizer), the British-Swedish pharmaceutical company AstraZeneca (AstraZeneca), and the American biotechnology firm Moderna (Modern).
