Slovakia is among the countries whose inhabitants trust the COVID vaccines and their safety the least among the EU member states.
A recent survey conducted in December has shown that while vaccine acceptance is currently 70 percent in the EU, it is lower in Slovakia, at 62 percent, as reported by the TASR newswire.
The Kantar company has conducted the survey on a sample of 24,424 respondents from 27 EU member states.
The refusal of the vaccines is highest in Bulgaria, with 34 percent of its respondents in the survey saying they never wanted to get the COVID jab, followed by Slovenia with 33 percent and then Slovakia and Hungary with 32 percent.
