24 Apr. 2021. Covid-19 vaccines are becoming a key weapon for controlling the spread of the continuing pandemic. Polling from across the world indicates that since the start of 2021, larger numbers of residents are vaccinated or plan to get vaccinated against the virus.

The data in this case are from by the polling organization YouGov that regularly conducts online surveys around the world. The business research company Statista compiled and displayed YouGov’s data from 12 countries since the beginning of 2021 through 21 Apr. United Kingdom leads the world in vaccine intention at 89 percent, up from 80 percent in January, also the world’s leader at that time. United Arab Emirates made the largest gain in this time, from 56 percent at the end of December 2020 to 86 percent today.

France and the Philippines are at the bottom of the list with less than 60 percent willing to get vaccinated, although in January, the percentage of French residents expecting to take the vaccine was only 39 percent. In the U.S., the percentage already or willing to get vaccinated is up to 65 percent, from less than half (47%) in early January.

Willingness to get vaccinated is one thing, having vaccines on hand is another. The New York Times this morning recommends several ways for wealthier nations to speed vaccine production and deliveries worldwide.
