Attached word clouds generated from the qualitative questions from the UCL-Penn Global COVID Study. Participants were asked:
'Should a vaccine be available to you in the next few months, how likely are you to take the vaccine?'
Responses ranged from Unlikely/Very Unlikely (15.2%), Unsure (21.8%), Likely/Very likely (63%). These findings are consisten with other independent polls of vaccine hesitancy both in the UK and Europe.
Participant's responses from each of the above categories were futher analysed when asked, "What are the reasons for the above choice?'
