A new INNOVATIVE online poll of 4,150 Canadians finds 84% of adult Canadians are either already vaccinated or likely to do so. Almost half of the willing adults (40%) are already at least partially vaccinated. Among the rest, 29% are definitely planning to be vaccinated.
Younger Canadians are much more vaccine hesitant than older Canadians. Regionally, Albertans and Atlantic Canadians are most likely to be hesitant.
Experience with COVID has a limited impact on willingness to be vaccinated although those who know someone admitted to hospital are more willing and less hesitant.
People who work in health care themselves are more willing than average to be vaccinated, but we still find 13% of health workers are unlikely to be vaccinated.
