A recent survey by the Ipsos Reid Institute has determined a significant increase in the number of Canadians who want to be vaccinated for COVID-19.

According to the results, seven-in-ten Canadians 55 years of age and older now say they want to be vaccinated right away.

Meanwhile, 53 per cent of men aged 18-34 say they will want to get the vaccine as soon as possible, compared to 57 per cent of women aged 18-34.

In the 35-54 age bracket, 52 per cent of men want to be vaccinated sooner than later, compared to 69 per cent of women.

Overall, 12 per cent of Canadians say they have no plans for the COVID-19 vaccine at all, while the rest appear relatively comfortable with the prospect. Among the 88 per cent who do not rule out being inoculated, the vast majority say they are more confident than anxious about receiving their doses.
