Summary of report content

Healthwatch Leeds launched a survey to learn about how people in Leeds felt about getting their COVID-19 vaccine. This report is based on the responses received up to midday 1st December 2020 from 2881 people.

  • The results indicate that while majority of the respondents (80%) were planning to get the vaccine, some people were unsure (13%) while others didn’t plan to get the vaccine (7%).
  • People over the age of 65 years were more likely to say they want the vaccine, while people between 25-34 years old were least likely to get it.
  • Men were more likely than women to get the vaccine when it was made available to them.
  • People from White British backgrounds were more likely than people from other ethnic backgrounds to say they plan to get the vaccine. People from Black African or Caribbean backgrounds reported the lowest levels of intention to take up the vaccine and the highest levels of uncertainty about it.
  • The report also looks at the correlation between other characteristics and likelihood of getting the vaccine including people with disability or long-term health condition, people with young children and caring responsibilities.
  • More healthcare workers were unsure about the vaccine or said they won’t get it compared to people who were not a health and care worker.
  • The most common reason for people to have the vaccine was to protect themselves, to protect others, get back to normal and to end the pandemic.
