Key differences by demographic

Age

Younger age groups are more likely to think they do not need to get a vaccine because they are not in a high risk group.

Gender

Females are more concerned about the long-term effects to their fertility. Males are more likely to lack trust in the government and want more transparency about how the vaccine has been developed. Although less common than females, some male respondents also express concern about the impacts to fertility.

Ethnic group

BAME respondents are slightly more likely to reference the lack of trust in the government as a barrier to vaccination compared to white respondents. It is important to note here the small number of responses to this question from BAME groups.
