Phase 1 was a survey which was completed in January and February 2021. 445 people completed the survey - 183 women and 71 men.
The biggest single reason for being hesitant about getting the vaccine was that people felt it had not been tested enough. The survey confirmed that the black population of Haringey was more vaccine hesitant than the white population. Under 60% of Black people would take the vaccine, whereas over 90% of White British people would take the vaccine if offered it.
Vaccine hesitancy was highest in the 18-24 age group.

Our research found young people did not see the vaccine as something they needed or that was helpful or useful to them. Those willing to have the vaccine were doing it to protect their family, older family members, the clinically vulnerable or the wider community or because family members had had the vaccine and were OK which was reassuring, and family members encouraged them to have the vaccine.
