Over 64% of people in Bangladesh would take the COVID-19 vaccine
A survey conducted by the University of Maryland, in partnership with Facebook shows that in Bangladesh over 64% people that responded to the survey intend to take the COVID-19 vaccine -- says a press release.
People's willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine varies widely across the world. For example, the average intent in Vietnam is 86%, compared to 72% in India.
As part of Facebook's Data for Good programme, Facebook is collaborating with academic partners to invite a sample of people on Facebook to participate in off-platform surveys. With over 39 million responses to date in 200 countries and territories since April 2020, this is one of the largest surveys to help health researchers better monitor and forecast the spread of COVID-19.
The surveys are conducted by academic partners and Facebook does not receive individual survey responses.
