There is a strong relationship between politics and willingness to accept the Covid-19 vaccine.
This is the evidence presented in a study released on Wednesday.
The study – by the University of Johannesburg’s sociology department and the Human Sciences Research Council titled “Who wants the vaccine, who doesn’t and why” – revealed that people who were not willing to participate in elections and vote, and who did not support any political party, had a very low level of acceptance of the Covid-19 vaccine and would most likely not take it.
