A total of 39% of Norwegians surveyed in a new survey say they would not be willing to take a vaccine against COVID-19 if it became available next week.

The survey was conducted by Ipsos for newspaper Dagbladet.

At the same time, almost half of the respondents – 49% – answered that they would be willing to take the vaccine, while 12% were unsure.

“This is not a surprising result, because we currently don’t actually have an approved COVID-19 vaccine, so we don’t know the effects of a vaccine, and we don’t know the vaccine’s side effects,” infection control director Geir Bukholm at the National Institute of Public Health (FHI) told Dagbladet.

A total of 926 people participated in the survey.
