REPORT: One Third of Romanians Would Refuse a COVID-19 Vaccine

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

It’s clear that massive international pressure is being put to bear on countries to cooperate in the roll-out of an experimental coronavirus vaccine – a project that’s being spearheaded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation its pharmaceutical industry partners. 

In Romania, experts are urging the parliament to push through legislation for a mandatory vaccine.

However, a new opinion poll shows that some 33 per cent of Romanians would reject a vaccine for COVID-19 – under any circumstances.

Balkan Insight reports…

One out of three Romanians would refuse to be vaccinated against Covid-19, according to an opinion survey conducted on May 13 and 14 by the Romanian Institute for Evaluation and Strategy, IRES, results of which were published by media on Tuesday.

According to the survey, which questioned a sample of over 1,000 adults representative of Romanian society’s composition, four out ten Romanians would accept a vaccine against Covid-19 once it has been tested and approved.

Meanwhile, 33 per cent of the respondents said that they would not get the vaccine under any circumstance.

The results of the survey come against the backdrop of the growing visibility of the anti-vaccine movement in the country.

“Amid the pandemic, we realise how important it is that vaccines for infectious diseases exist and that we use them on time,” doctor Alexandru Rafila of the Romanian Society of Microbiology told news channel Digi24 earlier this month.

Rafila warned against “lowering [one’s] guard” against conventional and potentially lethal contagious diseases such as measles, diphtheria and tetanus while focusing on protection against the coronavirus.

He pleaded with the public to use the available vaccines against such diseases -and called for the adoption of the law to make vaccination mandatory as soon as possible.

“The vaccination law is absolutely necessary,” Rafila said.

He advised people to get themselves vaccinated against the normal flu this coming autumn, as influenza infections can weaken the organism of vulnerable people, for whom Covid-19 is proving particularly dangerous.

He strongly recommended the flu vaccination for such people, as it will “eliminate one of the two threats” they will face.

According to Rafila, the percentage of Romanians who get vaccinations has decreased between 10 and 15 per cent since 2009, a situation that is not dissimilar from countries like France, Germany and Italy…
