Vaccine skepticism in Germany multiplies with novel COVID vaccines

11.02.2021 I kENUP Foundation, Swiss Academies of Arts and Sciences, EIB Institute

 

Vaccine skepticism in Germany multiplies with novel COVID vaccines
  • 13.7 million new vaccine opponents since pandemic onset;
  • skepticism mostly exacerbated by fears of long-term damage and fast vaccine approval processes, correlates with corona virus denial;
  • 90% of skeptics feel they have no influence over politics, are predominantly AfD-leaning and about 45% attained the lowest level or left secondary school without certification;
  • while new skeptics could be convinced by facts, long-term anti-vaccinationists appear unyielding.
