Only 55% of Ontarians Want A COVID-19 Vaccine Once They're Available, Survey Says
A new survey conducted by Campaign Research for The Toronto Star drew some surprising conclusions about the Ontario COVID-19 vaccine.
The study sampled 1,001 respondents who are eligible voters in Ontario and part of a Maru/Blue research panel.
According to their study, only 55% of surveyed Ontarians would be willing to get the COVID-19 vaccine when it's made available.

Twenty-four percent of surveyed voters were unsure about whether they'd like to receive it right away, says the report.
According to the report, 21% of surveyed Ontarians do not want one whatsoever.
The study was conducted through an online survey and a "probabilistic sample of a similar size would have a margin of error of plus or minus 3%," says The Research Campaign.
It was announced Wednesday morning that Health Canada had officially given the Pfizer vaccine the green light.
They say vaccinations could begin as early as next week.
