The Imperial College London YouGov Covid-19 Behaviour Tracker Data Hub gathers global insights on people’s behaviors in response to COVID-19. This survey covers public behaviors and attitudes ranging from mask-wearing to self-isolation, social distancing, symptoms and testing.
The following two charts show monthly data from this survey on the willingness of people to get vaccinated against COVID-19. Survey respondents were presented with the following statement: “If a COVID-19 vaccine were made available to me this week, I would definitely get it.” Respondents were asked to react to this statement on a 1 to 5 scale, ranging from “Strongly agree” (1) to “Strongly disagree” (5).
Based on this scale, we consider respondents to be willing to get a COVID-19 vaccine if they selected 1 or 2, unwilling to get a COVID-19 vaccine if they selected 4 or 5, and uncertain if they are willing to get a COVID-19 vaccine if they selected 3.
Both charts below show the share of a country’s population that has received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine in comparison to the share of the population that is unvaccinated, where the share of the unvaccinated population is separated into those who would be willing vs. unwilling vs. uncertain if they would get a COVID-19 vaccine if it was made available to them this week.1
The first chart shows this data for a single country over time, while the second chart shows the same data for multiple countries at a single point in time.
