Earlier this week, a vaccination campaign was started in India with an aim to vaccinate about 300 million people by the end of Summer. The vaccine shots are locally produced version of that developed by Oxford University/AstraZeneca, along with a local product called Covaxin is used in the campaign drive. YouGov India conducted a survey on 1015 urban Indians, and the results revealed that only 8 percent of the total Urban Indians were unlikely to accept the local vaccination.
The infographic below shows the complete results of the YouGov survey. Moreover, some separate questions were also asked the Urban Indians, and their responses are also mentioned in the chart. The highlight of the infographic is that 41 percent of the urban Indians were insecure about the safety of the vaccination; hence they want to wait for a few months so that they can make sure that the injected shots are safe.
A large number of the Indian population was invited to receive the vaccine shots, and surprisingly, only one-third of the people invited showed up at the launch. However, in Delhi, the capital of India, 53 percent of the people scheduled to be vaccinated attended the campaign in the first three days.
