One-third, 35% of Britons say they are unlikely to get the COVID-19 vaccine, according to a new poll released on Sunday.
Opinion Observer polled 48% of Britons that it is unsafe and 47% that it will not be effective.
More than half, 55%, said they were concerned it would cause side effects.
Yet, when the vaccine became available, only 20% said they were unlikely to take it, less than the 24% who responded two weeks ago.
Overall, 68% are likely to take it when it becomes available and the government recommends taking it from 67% two weeks ago.
The British Health Department said the vaccine would be deployed from next Tuesday.
The first batch of Pfizer-Biotech wax arrived last Thursday and will be available in 800,000 doses in the UK from next week.
The government has ordered 40 million doses of the vaccine, which will be given to 20 million people in two doses every 21 days.
The government has also announced an order to vaccinate people.
First and foremost are the residents of the care homes and their caregivers over the age of 80 and leading health and community care workers.
People over the age of 75, people over the age of 70, very clinically debilitated, people over the age of 65, and people between the ages of 16 and 64 with healthy conditions.
These groups are followed by those over 60, then over 55 and over 50.
