Nearly half or 47% of Filipinos said they would not get vaccinated against COVID-19 even as manufacturers and governments are in a race to find a working jab, results of a Pulse Asia survey released Thursday showed.
Moreover, 32% of 2,400 respondents in the Nov. 23 to Dec. 2 poll said they would get the jab, while 21% were undecided.
The results reflect how Filipinos view the safety of the COVID-19 vaccines. Of the total respondents, 84% said they were "not sure it it's safe."
