The proportion of people who had a positive attitude towards vaccination vs. those who had a negative attitude towards vaccination was revealed by the closed-ended questions. The open-ended questions elicited qualitative data on why peo-ple accepted or rejected the vaccination.Results: 62.9% of the total number of respondents, male 1.97 times more likely (OR: 1.97, CI: 1.08-3.58) than female, 80% younger than 50 years, higher age groups, 71.3% married, 69.3% of the working population intended to get vaccinated with COVID-19 vaccine.
