According to a recent Super poll, nearly 90% of respondents say they want every Thai citizen to receive the first dose to fight Covid-19, but are less concerned when the second dose is given. Furthermore, almost 80% of respondents believe they can resume their pre-Covid-19 life as soon as Thais get their first dose.

The director of the Super Poll Research Institute says the poll indicates the people of Thailand will have more trust in the government once 70% of its people have been vaccinated. The spokesperson says that trust will be further increased if the government focuses on continual communication on how the vaccination campaign is being handled. He also criticised spreaders of fake news relating to Covid-19 vaccinations, specifically about the vaccination’s effectiveness, a tactic, according to him, to dissuade people from receiving the vaccination, were pointless criticisms.

Further information on the survey showed…

• 6% want the government to prioritise groups of people in high-risk areas for vaccination and to allow each province to manage its own vaccination program
• 6% want the government to allow the private sector to procure alternative vaccines as quickly as possible
• 7% want everyone to have access to the vaccines
• 6% are confident that Thailand can reopen for economic recovery after every Thai is vaccinated with the first dose, compared to only 6.8% who have no confidence
