At the end of June 2021, the government has announced the start of COVID-19 vaccination programs for children aged between 12-17 years old. For some, this is a breath of fresh air, considering the Indonesian national COVID-19 positive distribution for children between 6-18 years old are around 9.9% of all positive cases. However, considering there are still 23.5% respondents that when asked by LSI mentioned that they doubt vaccination’s efficiency, we asked our consumer panel their opinions, especially regarding the vaccines for children.
At the time of the survey, 27% of consumers are still not aware of the availability of vaccines for children. For those who do, It’s interesting to see that only 55% are happy regarding the vaccine’s availability. 24% still mentioned that they doubt the vaccines, even the ones for adults, which is in line with LSI’s data mentioned previously. 12%, however, trust them for adults, however are yet to trust the ones for children.
How about you? What are your thoughts regarding the COVID-19 vaccine currently, especially the ones for children?
