Updated: Feb 9, 2023

Report by Reading Voice

More than 160 people told us why they had chosen not to come forward for vaccination, in a project commissioned by the Berkshire West Vaccines Action Group.

Key findings

  • 76% said concerns about vaccine side-effects had put them off coming forward

  • 34% said they hadn’t come forward because Covid was now a mild disease

  • 28% said they thought they were ‘covered’ by previously having been infected with Covid

  • 71% said their mind was made up about not getting vaccinated

  • 15% said more information about vaccine safety could change their mind
