Survey: Most Hungarians See Vaccine 'Panacea'
A majority of Hungarians regard a vaccine as the only way to control the coronavirus pandemic, and more and more people are expressing a willingness to get inoculated, according to a survey by the Századvég Foundation released on Friday.

The number of people stating a definite readiness to get vaccinated has gone up this month to 34% from 24% in December 2020, the survey showed.

The number of those who are somewhat inclined to get the shot also increased, to 28% from 25% in the previous month.

The ratio of sceptics is 35%, down from 52% in November and 48% in December.

Századvég attributed the increased willingness to reports of a steady growth of vaccinations in countries around the world.

“Hungarians have recognised that the vaccines carry no risk and do not have major side effects.”
