A large portion of skeptics are women and Indigenous Australians, you're literally advocating the death of some of the the most vulnerable in our society.I think we should actively support their right to catch Covid and die
sh*t, I'm even willing to help them in a letter writing campaign
Cool activist avatar though.
Australia’s longest-running study of people’s experiences of and attitudes towards the coronavirus – run by the Australian National University and being released on Friday – shows 21.7 per cent of the more than 3500 respondents said they probably or definitely would not be vaccinated. This was up from about 12.7 per cent in August last year.
“We also found more than three in 10 Australians, some 31.9 per cent, became less willing to get a vaccine between August 2020 and January 2021,” study co-author Nicholas Biddle said, while nearly 20 per cent of people moved from being “definitely willing” to “probably willing”.
The main groups now less willing to receive a jab include females, Indigenous Australians, those who speak a language other than English at home and those who have not completed year 12.
