Findings from our latest spark* insights polling (online survey of 2,000 Canadians conducted in October 2023) include:
Bruce Anderson: “A great number of Canadians have had experience with Covid directly and while many plan to continue to take up the opportunity for Covid booster shots this fall, a sizeable minority will not. This is likely due to a combination of factors, including a sense that the severity of the illness has declined, the cumulation of misinformation about the risks associated with the vaccine, and politicization of the choice to be vaccinated or not. The science of the disease and the vaccine is the same whether you are Conservative or Liberal, so the only difference is what you’ve been told and what you trust, by the politicians you are attentive to.”
Survey details: October 10-15 online, 2000 cases nationwide in Canada.
