In December 2020, the SARS-CoV-2 vaccine was first approved in the Western world. However, the effectiveness of national vaccination plans depends on the willingness of the population to get vaccinated. For better understanding of attitudes towards COVID-19 vaccination a cross-sectional survey was conducted of the Slovenian population aged 15 or more. Study was conducted through 1ka web application, to which 12,042 individuals responded. Ordinal regression analysis was used with mediation to study the interaction of different factors that impact the intent to vaccinate. In addition, textual analysis was run on open-ended question response data to get a better insight into the motivations behind the answers. Valicon also used the questionnaire in parallel on its JazVem web panel.
