Two-thirds of hospital civil servants (FPH) are in favor of compulsory vaccination for caregivers and health sector personnel, according to an Ipsos survey commissioned by the Ministry of the Economy and unveiled on Tuesday. In detail, 67% of FPH agents approve the obligation, a percentage lower than that observed in the State civil service (71%) but clearly higher than the rate recorded in the territorial civil service (58%). All sides combined, membership stands at 66%.
Agents in contact with the public are more in favor of compulsory vaccination for caregivers than those who do not interact directly with it (67% against 60%). The first reason given by those resistant to vaccination is the lack of perspective on the effects of the vaccine. Some 78% of them believe to justify their refusal “that we do not have enough perspective on the vaccine” and “that we do not know all the risks”.
In total, 82% of public officials say they are fully vaccinated. The survey was carried out on August 31 and September 1 among a national sample of 800 people, “representative of civil servants aged 18 and over” according to the quota method.
