<p>Almost half of Italians say that <strong>will not be vaccinated against the new coronavirus</strong>. Despite the proclamations of the scientific community, which identifies immunization as the only way to return to normal after the health emergency, a survey by the Engageminds Hub of the Catholic University of Milan reports that one of our compatriots out of two will not undergo the puncture .
The 41% of respondents he placed his propensity to get vaccinated for Covid-19 between “not at all probable” and halfway between “probable and not probable”.
The research was conducted between 12 and 18 May on a sample of 1,000 people representative of the entire Italian population. The propensity not to get vaccinated is slightly higher in the Center of Italy, where it stands at 48%. The identikit of those who decided that they will not do prophylaxis was Guendalina Graffigna, coordinator of the study, at Adnkronos.
“In general i younger and older ones are less hesitant against vaccination “, with the percentage of those against the vaccine standing at 34% for the former and 29% for the latter. “More laden with doubts, however, are the people between 35 and 59 years old“, Where the percentage rises to 48%.
“The research does not reveal any particular emphasis on the basis of the profession: retirees and students are less suspicious of the vaccine. On the other hand, the workers are more hesitant and, on average, employees and entrepreneurs“, Explains the researcher.
“But what makes the difference seems to be psychology. If we compare the percentages of those who are unwilling to get vaccinated among the different subgroups of the sample, we note that who is fatalistic in health management and he believes that the risk of Sars-CoV-2 infection is beyond his control is even more hesitant than the possibility of getting vaccinated “, with a percentage of 57% against 41% of the total average.
Furthermore, to make the difference is the consideration of vaccination as an act of social responsibility. Those who have an individualistic and selfish approach in health management, have the highest rate of indivudes that declare that they will not undergo the puncture: 71%.
“These figures are a alarm bell to consider, above all because they signal the need to start immediately with an education and awareness campaign dedicated to the population in which to help understand the importance of getting vaccinated against Covid-19 “, stressed Guendalina Graffigna.
“It’s not just about spreading information or fighting fake news about vaccines. What must be advocated, even before a positive attitude towards vaccines, is the maturing of a better one active involvement in health and prevention, which goes from understanding how each of our preventive actions is an act of social responsibility towards the health of the community“Concluded the psychologist.
The Oxford coronavirus vaccine could be distributed as early as September, at the end of the tests on humans, as long as their effectiveness is proven.
