COVID-19, % willing to get the vaccine, Canada 

angusreid.org/canada-covid-vac

The number of people willing to get the vaccine right away has risen to 48% of Canadians, up from 40% a month ago. This gets higher as people get older.

31% said yes, eventually, but they would wait, and most of the gain in "get now" has some form this category.

That has 80% of Canadians willing to get it.

70% of people who said no or they'd wait are worried about *long-term* side effects, and given we've got months before general roll-out, hopefully we can dispel those fears. (This has been a worry for every vaccine dating back to meseals and polio, so we have LOTS of experience in public health communication and fighting that specific fear.)
