More Filipinos have expressed willingness to get vaccinated against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey conducted from June 23-26, 2021, revealed.

The national survey, which was conducted among 1,200 adult respondents, found that 45 percent are willing (consisting of 36 percent surely and 9 percent probably), 24 percent are uncertain, and 21 percent are unwilling (consisting of 3 percent probably not and 18 percent surely not) to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

SWS said the latest percentage of those willing to get vaccinated is 13 points above the 32 percent (consisting of 23 percent surely and 9 percent probably) in May 2021.

Those uncertain about being vaccinated also went down from 35 percent and those unwilling to get vaccinated fell from 33 percent (consisting of 7 percent probably not and 26 percent surely not).

In Metro Manila, those willing, uncertain, and unwilling to get vaccinated are 49 percent, 16 percent, and 8 percent, respectively, in June 2021 compared to 41 percent, 30 percent, and 29 percent in May 2021.

In Balance Luzon, those willing, uncertain, and unwilling to get vaccinated are 46 percent, 26 percent, and 20 percent, respectively, in June 2021 compared to 28 percent, 38 percent, and 34 percent in May 2021.

In Visayas, those willing, uncertain, and unwilling to get vaccinated are 41 percent, 21 percent, and 31 percent, respectively, in June 2021 compared to 32 percent, 30 percent, and 38 percent in May 2021.

In Mindanao, those willing, uncertain, and unwilling to get vaccinated are 42 percent, 29 percent, and 23 percent, respectively, in June 2021 compared to 34 percent, 36 percent, and 30 percent in May 2021.

Probed for the first time in June 2021, SWS said the percentage of those who already received their first dose of the vaccine is highest in Metro Manila (21 percent), followed distantly by Balance Luzon (5 percent), Visayas (5 percent), and Mindanao (3 percent).

Those who already received their second dose of the vaccine are also highest in Metro Manila (5 percent), followed by Mindanao (3 percent), Balance Luzon (3 percent), and the Visayas (1 percent).

“In Metro Manila, then, adding the 26 percent of respondents that have at least one dose of vaccine to the 49 percent who express willingness to be vaccinated yields an estimated three-fourths (76 percent, correctly rounded) of Metro Manila residents favorably inclined to the vaccination effort. This is accompanied by a reduction in those unwilling to be vaccinated from 29 percent to 8 percent of respondents,” SWS said.
