A large percentage of young South Africans, between the ages of 18 and 24 years of age, are the most unwilling to get vaccinated against Covid-19.

This, according to new research by Ask Afrika, which also shows that only 62% of adult South Africans say they are willing to get a Covid-19 vaccine.

Ask Afrika CEO, Andrea Rademeyer says another 11% of residents are still sitting on the fence.

Rademeyer says the country’s overall vaccine-acceptance is much lower than the average of 70% recently reported in studies conducted by the University of Johannesburg and the Human Sciences Research Council.
