Summary of report content

Healthwatch Doncaster undertook a survey on Covid-19 vaccinations to which 3,978 people responded.  Most people had already had their vaccine, and most of those that hadn’t were intending to be vaccinated when called.

Those who didn’t intend to get vaccinated cited concerns about the safety of the vaccine, insufficient information about the vaccine and concerns about its impact on fertility.

Over half felt they had had enough information about the vaccine.
