Covid, Altroconsumo: “Two thirds of Italians in favor of the mandatory vaccine”

Byeditorial

Dec 3, 2021

Almost two out of three Italians would be in favor of the compulsory anti-Covid vaccine for adults. However, there is no shortage of fears about the third dose and about the vaccine for younger people: less than half parents with children under 12 are inclined to vaccinate them and 23% declare that they do not intend to do so. On the Green pass front, only 10 out of 100 Italians do not have it and more than half of those who have it say it makes it feel safer in public places. These, in summary, are the data of a survey by Altroconsumo on more than a thousand Italians between 18 and 74 years of age. According to the research, the attitude towards vaccination is positive in the vast majority of respondents, but a strong polarization emerges, especially among those who are not vaccinated and do not intend to do so. As of November 15, 82% of respondents to the survey were full course vaccinated; only 2%, however, also took the third dose. 6% only took the first dose, while 12% did not get vaccinated (11% did not get their own vaccinations and less than 1% booked). Those who are vaccinated have a higher level of education and a better economic situation than those who are not. Difficulties in accessing the vaccine are curbing. Among those who are vaccinated or who have booked an appointment, 23% have encountered at least one problem: these are practical difficulties, such as those related to the booking, the distance from the vaccination hub or the inability to miss work days. The data on pregnant women, on the other hand, concerns citizens of Belgium, Italy, Portugal and Spain, the four countries of the Euroconsumers organization in which the survey was conducted. In a significant percentage of cases it was suggested by the doctor to wait until the end of the pregnancy to be vaccinated. An indication not supported by scientific evidence. On the contrary, the Ministry of Health recommends anti-Covid vaccination in the second and third trimesters of pregnancy and in breastfeeding women. The main reasons for not getting vaccinated The reasons of those who did not get vaccinated were investigated, highlighting that: more than one out of two do not consider vaccines safe (51%); almost 4 out of 10 do not consider them effective (38%) and, in this case, the lack of clarity on the vaccine’s goal probably weighs, which is not to not get sick, but to not end up in hospital with a severe form of Covid ; 22% justify their refusal with the fact that they do not belong to a category at risk, and in this case the social value of vaccination escapes, not only to slow down the circulation of the virus, but also to prevent the overload of public health services; 45% do not believe in the good faith of those who work to approve vaccines, and 45% believe that there are hidden political and economic interests.As regards the last point, the interviewees were asked for their opinion on how to vaccine approval and EU behavior: only 20% of respondents believe that the vaccine buying process has been well managed by the European Union, while 43% believe the EU has not managed it well ; 54% would have liked greater transparency in the negotiations; less than 30% believe that the EU has been useful in obtaining a better agreement than that which individual states would have obtained; more than 30% are convinced that Italy would have done as well or better than the EU; more than a quarter of people believe that the EU has made the interests of pharmaceutical companies more than of citizens, while a third disagree with this statement. With regard to the Green pass, almost 9 out of 10 Italians have it. But so far there are few checks: 58% of the sample admitted that they had not been checked at least once in places where the Green pass was necessary. But what are the opinions on green certificate? Over half (53%) feel safer since the Green pass was introduced to go to public places; only 43% feel safer since the Green pass was introduced to go to the workplace; 33% no longer feel confident, and 20% are unsure. 48% believe that it is an effective measure to avoid the spread of the infection; 30% believe it is not, and around 18% are uncertain about it. With regard to the vaccination obligation, in detail, 65% are in favor of all adults, while only 42% agree to extend the obligation to children aged 12-17 and only 31% to oblige minors of 12 years. However, one in two Italians has some fears about the third dose, and more than half think that the trend of the epidemic will force him to have to be vaccinated every year in the future. Furthermore, three out of 5 Italians are worried about heterologous vaccination, that is, about having to make boosters with different vaccines. Three out of 5 respondents are therefore concerned about the vaccination of children under 12. In this regard, less than 50% of parents with children under 12 are inclined to vaccinate them against Covid once the vaccine is available to them, while 30% are still undecided and 23% are not inclined to vaccinate them. “The data tells us that two out of three consumers in Europe are in favor of compulsory vaccination for adults. We are therefore too”, says Federico Cavallo, Altroconsumo’s external relations manager. “The reason – he continues – is very simple: only the vaccine can lead to the definitive defeat of the virus that has afflicted our lives and economies for over a year. Individual fears must be respected, where still present. We were the first to investigate them. to encourage effective responses from those who have to give them, government and health institutions in the first place. But in this historical phase, with infections on the rise and new variants that risk frustrating the efforts made so far by Italian and European citizens, courageous decisions must be taken that privilege the collective interest “. “Among these – points out Cavallo – the compulsory vaccination of adults. Only with the widespread assumption of responsibility by everyone, which the great majority of people now share, will it be possible to protect the health of the population, starting from the weakest or most those who, due to particular pathologies, cannot get vaccinated. Thinking first of all of them and gathering the voice of a perhaps less ‘noisy’ and therefore often unheard majority of people, like Altroconsumo, we believe we must proceed without delay on this difficult but necessary path. Public health and full health security are in fact the fundamental prerequisites for economic recovery, essential in the face of the rise in prices and inflation that consumers are facing. Above all, they are the indispensable factor to finally return to giving people a realistic and stable hope for a more peaceful future “.
