More than 40% of Bulgarians will not get vaccinated against COVID-19 –


More than 40% of Bulgarians do not plan to get vaccinated against COVID-19. This is what the results of a study by the Center for Analysis and Marketing show. The data is as of October 10, and a total of 812 people participated in the study, with whom a one-on-one interview was conducted.

Only 1/4 of the respondents answered that they had already been vaccinated. Seven percent of respondents expect to be vaccinated within a month, and nearly 15 percent will wait to see the effects of the vaccines for themselves. More than 10% of citizens say they have already fallen ill and benefit from immunity.

“A lot of people are taking anti-scientific positions, I don’t know why. Heavier measures await us. We are doing it ourselves as a population,” commented Yuliy Pavlov, director of the Center for Analysis and Marketing.

Meanwhile, virologists say the best protection is for people who have encountered the virus and then been vaccinated. It is best to do this at least 6-8 months after COVID-19 illness.

The new coronavirus cases for the last day are 3,327. Almost 18% are positive samples from more than 19,000 tests. In this context, the new restrictive measures in the capital enter into force today.
