Most Canadians don't think we'll see a COVID vaccine by 2021: poll

The study also asked Canadians how likely they'll be to get immunized, once that's an option

Only 25 per cent of Canadians believe a vaccine for COVID-19 will be available to the public by the end of the year.

That's according to a recent survey by Narrative Research, in collaboration with Logit Group, which found 48 per cent aren't very confident we'll see an immunization by 2021, while 22 per cent are somewhere in the middle.

Those between the ages of 18-24 are the most optimistic.

The study also asked Canadians how likely they'll be to get immunized, once that's an option.

"Only three-quarters of the population anticipate that they'll get the vaccination once it's available," said the polling company's CEO Margaret Brigley. "That means there's a notable chunk of the population that will not."

Fourty-four per cent say they'll definitely get it, while 30 per cent will probably get it.

Those living in Newfoundland and Labrador are most likely to definitely be vaccinated at 59 per cent.

Quebecers are the least likely, with 21 per cent saying they'll probably or definitely not.

The online survey was conducted with 1,230 Canadians 18 years of age or older between July 9 and 11.
