COVID-19: Seven-in-ten oppose sharing vaccines globally

COVID-19: Seven-in-ten oppose sharing vaccines globally

until vaccinations in Canada are complete

NORTHERN, ONTARIO   ~~~~~~   June 14, 2021  (LSN)  Under pressure at the G-7 summit to reveal how much of Canada’s pledge to share 100 million doses of COVID-19 vaccine with developing countries would come in the form of cash versus real jabs, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau revealed Sunday the Canadian government would donate 13 million doses of actual surplus shots to spur global immunization, while pledging funds to buy 87 million more.

Vaccine hesitation remains highest in AB and SK, where one-in-five opposed to or unsure of inoculation

Now, new data from the Angus Reid Institute finds the emphasis on weighting the promise more heavily to future purchases than sharing existing stock, aligns broadly with this nation’s desire to put “Canada First” when it comes to vaccination priority.

Nearly three-quarters of Canadians (72%) are of the opinion that until all willing residents 12 years of age and older have received their jabs, the country should focus its efforts at home rather than abroad. Younger people, between the ages of 18 and 34, are slightly more inclined to say the time has come to pivot to sharing vaccine with the developing world, but just one-quarter say this.

On the domestic vaccination front, one-in-five residents in Alberta and Saskatchewan (18% in each) remain either unwilling to or unsure of receiving a COVID-19 vaccination. This has led Premier Jason Kenney to announce a $3 million lottery program to push Alberta across its vaccination target for reopening. Demand in the province has diminished considerably in recent weeks.

More Key Findings:

  • Just over half of Canadians (54%) have some level of concern about becoming sick with COVID-19. This is the lowest mark since last year in June. One-in-five (18%) remain ‘very concerned’.
  • 51 per cent say that the federal government has done a good job of securing COVID-19 doses. But politics deeply colours opinion: seven-in-ten past CPC voters disagree, while at least 62 per cent of all other federal party voters agree. 
  • When asked about the pace of second-dose distribution in their own provinces, half say it’s going as well as can be expected (49%), while the number saying it’s “taking too long” (27%) slightly edge those who say it’s “going at a great pace” (24%). People in Manitoba and Ontario are least satisfied with the rate of second dose rollout in their respective provinces.
