Almost half of vaxxed unwilling to hang with unvaxxed: poll

0 0

Almost half of Canadians vaccinated against COVID-19 are “unlikely” to spend time with someone who hasn’t been jabbed, according to a new Angus Reid Institute poll.

The poll found 46% of respondents were unlikely or very unlikely to hang with the unvaccinated.

Another 23% said they were willing to hang out with unvaccinated individuals if they were personally fully vaccinated, and another 31% were pretty likely to spend time with people who had foregone the shots.

Older people were more likely than younger folks to express reluctance about socializing with the unvaccinated.

The majority of vaccinated Canadians also believed there was nothing wrong with asking the vaccination status of another individual, even though the unvaccinated did not agree.

And in Ontario, 69% of those polled support a vaccine passport for large events even though Premier Doug Ford has publicly come out against it, the poll found.

The pollster says the findings point to “new social dynamics” as the pandemic moves into a new phase.

“More than half of those who have received at least one dose of vaccine say it’s perfectly fine to ask someone about their vaccination status,” a statement form Angus Reid Institute released Wednesday says.

“Another three-in-ten say it depends, and are more comfortable asking family and friends, but less so strangers.

“Conversely, three-quarters of those who say they’ll eschew inoculation view being asked about one’s vaccination status as inappropriate,” it says.

Only 5% of those polled who are not getting the COVID-19 shots say they were “totally fine” with being asked about their vaccination status, the poll revealed.

About three in 10 Canadians are now “more anxious than excited” about returning to activities abandoned during the pandemic, the poll found.

A strong majority of Canadians who were vaccinated experienced some side effects from the shots, more likely on the second dose, the poll says.
