Half of Germans are dissatisfied with the vaccination campaign

One in two people in Germany is not satisfied with the organization of the vaccination campaign against the coronavirus that is being developed in the country, revealed a survey.

19% of those who responded to the survey carried out by the YouGov institute commissioned by DPA indicated that they were “very dissatisfied” and another 31%, that they were “dissatisfied” with how the campaign was carried out in the last 12 months.

Only 36% and 7% said they were “satisfied” and “very satisfied,” respectively. Another 7% did not respond.

On December 26, 2020, the first people in Germany were vaccinated against the coronavirus (COVID-19). Officially, the vaccination campaign in the European Union (EU) began on December 27.

Since then, they have been vaccinated in Germany at least 61.3 million people, which represents 73.7% of the population. 70.7% received two doses, while 35% already received three.

Some 21.8 million people in Germany (26.3% of the population) have not yet been vaccinated.

The German Chancellor, Olaf Scholz, wants to promote vaccination this holiday of New Year. A goal was set for 80% of the population to be vaccinated with at least one dose by January 7.

Scholz also proposed to the Bundestag (Lower House of Parliament) to decide on the mandatory nature of the vaccine early next year.

According to the YouGov poll, 62% of people in Germany are in favor of such a measure. Only 29% are against and 9% did not respond.
