Belgrade-based investigative and publishing centre, Demostat said its latest study showed that the view on the corona vaccine in Serbia “to some extent coincides with people’s political affiliation”.
46 per cent of survey respondents have said they would take the vaccine on doctors’ recommendation, while 31 per cent would not take it under any circumstances.
The research also showed that the respondents who said were not affiliated to any political party, trusted the most medical staff, with 44 per cent of them saying they would take the vaccine if an expert recommended it, and 34 per cent would not take it under any circumstances.
Furthermore, the study showed that 51 per cent of the polled people who supported the ruling Serbian Progressive Party (SNS) said they would take the vaccine if recommended by the doctors. In comparison, 17 per cent would agree to be vaccinated if Serbia’s President Aleksandar Vucic asked them to.
