Results in Mexico

According to the results of the Russian opinion survey, there is a great deal of confidence in our country for the human adenovirus-based vaccine. People from other nations such as India, Brazil, Vietnam, and the Philippines also expressed a greater predisposition to the Russian vaccine, at 55% to 60 %.

Meanwhile, nine out of 10 respondents who were offered the choice of vaccine prefer a vaccine based on the human adenovirus (the Sputnik V platform) to other platforms based on non-human adenoviruses.

According to the data, 73% of the world’s population is willing to be vaccinated against the coronavirus. Among those familiar with the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, the percentage of those who’re prepared to be vaccinated is even higher: 80% of those surveyed. This gives a total of 93% preference.

What’s more, 60% are aware of the Russian Sputnik V vaccine, the highest level of awareness among the countries participating in the survey, on a par with India.
