23 Percent of Czechs Say They Are Not Willing to Receive Coronavirus Vaccine

Twenty-three percent of Czechs said they are not willing to get the coronavirus vaccine, according to a new survey by the Public Opinion Research Centre (CVVM).

Meanwhile, 35 percent of respondents say that they will vaccinate themselves, with 7 percent replying that they are still unsure. The remaining individuals questioned by the survey said that they had already received at least one coronavirus vaccine dose.

The Czech Republic is occupying 21st place in the EU when it comes to the number of coronavirus cases in the past 14 days, according to the data released by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).

The government is pushing ahead with vaccinations but PM Andrej Babis has recently said that he had no plans to make them compulsory. Health Minister Adam Vojtech said he shared this view.

“To be clear, no vaccination, be it of the public or health professionals will be ever made compulsory under this government,” Babis stressed.

There were another 192 coronavirus cases in the Czech Republic on Saturday, and the reproduction number fell to 0.93, according to the data the Health Ministry released today.

For the second time in three weeks, the number of the infected dipped under 200. The reproduction number R, standing for the average number of those infected by one person with COVID, is now the lowest since the end of June.
