    In late state trials, Covid-19 vaccines are showing promising results, potentially heralding the beginning of the end of the pandemic. That is if they pass the final validations and people decide to take them. But there is reluctance. Samantha Vanderslott, a Social Sciences researcher at Oxford University, tells us that men are currently more wary of Covid-19 vaccinations than women, and the French are among the most skeptical, with just over half of the population saying they would take the jab.
