A new study has determined the most trusted vaccines in Canada

Not looking good for AstraZeneca.

A new survey by Leger Marketing has examined the trust that Canadians have for the COVID-19 vaccines available in Canada. Currently, Health Canada has approved four COVID-19 vaccines: Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Johnson & Johnson and AstraZeneca.

According to the poll results, the most trusted COVID-19 vaccine in Canada is Pfizer-BioNTech, trusted by 82% of respondents, followed by Moderna (77%) and Johnson & Johnson (69%). Not surprisingly considering recent revelations about a rare blood-clot side effect of the AstraZeneca shot (and the Canadian government restricting use of the vaccine to people 55 and older), AstraZeneca was the least trusted COVID-19 vaccine in Canada, at 53%.

Conversely, among Americans, the order of the most trusted vaccines remains the same (with Moderna and Johnson & Johnson tying in terms of trustworthiness at 58%). However even the most trusted vaccine, Pfizer-BioNTech, was only trusted by 63% of respondents.
