Over half of Poles oppose taking a Covid-19 vaccine, according to a poll published on Wednesday.

In the United Surveys poll, run for Poland's Dziennik Gazeta Prawna newspaper and the RMF FM radio broadcaster, 50.2 percent said they did not want to take the vaccine, with 28 percent "decidedly" and 22.2 percent "rather" against the idea.

Forty two percent said they planned to vaccinate themselves, including 26.7 percent “decidedly” and 15.8 percent “rather” in favour of vaccination.

Undecided pollees constituted 7.3 percent of the surveyed group.

United Surveys ran the poll on October 2 and 3 and November 13 on a random sample of 1,000 adult Poles.
