A new Ipsos survey conducted in partnership with the World Economic Forum points to a notable increase in COVID-19 vaccination intent since December in all 15 countries studied.

The survey also shows that in many countries, a large majority of those who intend to get a vaccine will seek to do as soon as it is available to them.

The survey was conducted among more than 13,500 adults under the age of 75, February 25-28, 2021, on Ipsos’ Global Advisor online platform.

Vaccination intent on the rise

Adults who strongly or somewhat agree they would get a vaccine against COVID-19 make up a majority of those who report they have not yet received it in all but one of the 15 countries surveyed. Intent to get vaccinated among those who are not is:

  • Very high in Brazil (89%), Italy (85%), China (82%), Spain (82%), Mexico (80%), and South Korea (80%);
  • Fairly high in Canada (79%), Australia (78%), Japan (74%), and Germany (74%);
  • Middling in the United States (65%), South Africa (65%), and France (59%); and,
  • Low in Russia (42%).

The percentage of those who strongly agree they will get vaccinated has increased in every one of the 15 countries since a similar survey was conducted December 17-20, 2020. At the time, many of the countries in the study had not yet approved a vaccine.

  • Since mid-December, eight of the 15 countries have seen an uptick in vaccine intent among those who have not been vaccinated of more than 20 percentage points: Italy (by 36 percentage points to 62% who strongly agree), Spain (+31 to 57%), the U.K and Brazil (+24 to 70% and 76%, respectively), France (+23 to 35%), Mexico (+22 to 64%), and Canada and Germany (+21 to 60% and 51%, respectively).
  • The countries showing the smallest gains are Russia (+2 to 16%) and the United States (+3 to 41%).
  • To put these numbers in perspective, according to Oxford University data, the share of the population who had been given at least one dose of the vaccine at the time of the survey was: approximately 29% in the U.K; 14% in the U.S.; 3 to 5% in Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Russia, and Spain; 1% in Mexico; and less than 1% in Australia, Japan, South Africa, and South Korea.

  • Over 80% in Brazil and the U.K (both 85%);
  • Over 70% in Mexico (78%), Spain (73%), Germany, and Italy (72%);
  • Over 60% in Canada (69%), France (67%), the U.S. (67%), and South Africa (64%);
