COVID-19 vaccination - differences and similarities in Europeans over 50 years of age
We analyzed the differences and similarities of Europeans' aged 50 and above attitudes to COVID-19 prevention. Our analysis is based on the Börsch-Supan, A. (2022). Survey of Health, Ageing and Retirement in Europe (SHARE) Wave 9. COVID-19 Survey 2. Release version: 8.0.0. Our findings point to countries specific differences in the level of willingness for prevention of COVID-19. Results show the presence of a definite leader in terms of positive attitudes towards the prevention of COVID-19, and that is Israel. As well, a clear leader in negative attitudes towards the prevention of COVID-19 is Bulgaria. In general, the current attitudes in the EU are positive regarding prevention against COVID-19 (in 17 out of a total of 28 states included in this study).
