A global survey has found that Britain and Israel lead the way when it comes to trust in COVID-19 vaccines.
The BBC's global health correspondent Naomi Grimley reports.
This survey suggests there's still room for improvement even in some of the world's most advanced economies.
Take South Korea, for example.
Only 47 percent of those asked trust the vaccine they've been offered.
In Japan, which is to stage the Olympics this summer, it's equally low.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, trust is high in Israel, and the UK tops this survey, with 87 percent expressing faith in vaccines.
The team at Imperial College London say the most commonly cited worries were concerns about side effects and questions over whether there had been enough testing of the vaccines.
