Meanwhile, the poll reported that 28% of the respondents said they are not interested in getting the vaccine. Of the sum, 31% are from class E, 28% from class D, and 19% are from class ABC.
Almost half of the respondents or 47% said they are still undecided whether or not they want to get vaccinated. The majority of this group of respondents came from class ABC with 52%, 48% from class D, and 42% are from class E.
