Utilizing a dual approach that includes a representative quantitative survey as well as social intelligence analytics, Ipsos provides a well-rounded view on the public’s stance regarding the vaccination.

Results revealed that, as the year started, less than half of Jordanians were willing to take the vaccine (44%), with higher acceptance among males and younger generations of ages 18-24. As reported by Jordanians reluctant to take the vaccine, the number one barrier causing their reluctance was skepticism about the vaccine's effectiveness (19%), followed by concerns regarding its side effects (13%). Moreover, 12% expressed lack of trust in the vaccine's contents especially when it comes to its origin or the company producing it, and 12% of Jordanians find the vaccine unnecessary to combat COVID-19 without mentioning certain reasons related to the vaccine.
