A survey on confidence about being vaccinated against COVID-19 in 15 African countries indicates that work on communication around vaccines is needed. Across the countries, willingness to take COVID-19 vaccines varied from 94% in Ethiopia to 59% in Democratic Republic of the Congo. Overall, vaccine safety was the leading concern; 25% of respondents believed that a COVID-19 vaccine would be unsafe and 18% believed that vaccines generally were not safe.
