A recent survey by King’s College London and Ipsos MORI showed only 53 percent of the UK population are “very likely” to get the COVID-19 vaccine once it’s on the market. Younger voters were twice as likely to oppose the vaccine in the poll of 2,237 people aged between 16 and 75.
To gauge readers’ views on the topical issue, Express.co.uk conducted an exclusive poll asking: “Should Britons be forced to have the coronavirus jab once it is developed?”
Sixty-five percent (2,906) of respondents said no, with many saying they would have to be dragged kicking and screaming to have the vaccine administered.
Thirty-four percent (1,617) said a compulsory vaccine programme should be rolled out across the UK, one of Europe’s hardest-hit countries since the beginning of the pandemic.
One percent (60) said they didn’t know.
One reader said they would not feel safe having a coronavirus vaccine injected into their body because they simply cannot trust pharma giants.

And yet a third said if a person did not wish to avail themselves of the virus vaccine but was pressured to do so, it would amount to assault.
The reader wrote: “Forced vaccination would amount to physical assault upon the person.
“And those attacked in such way would be fully justified in using whatever means to defend themselves from such assault, as I will do.”
One 71-year-old diabetic man acknowledged he was in the high-risk category for the disease.
But he insisted he would rather gamble with the potentially deadly infection rather than be injected with a vaccine.
He explained: “They are pointless as the germs mutate too rapidly for the vaccine to keep up.
“On the other hand, they put mercury and other aggressive antagonists in the vaccines to trigger an immune system response.
“Who knows what damage this does to us?
