61% of Malta believes getting a COVID-19 vaccine is still a civic duty

A Eurobarometer survey exploring countries’ approach to the COVID-19 vaccine has revealed that while 92 per cent of Malta is vaccinated, enthusiasm towards mandatory vaccination has dropped significantly.

The percentage of people believing that “everyone should get vaccinated against COVID-19 because it is a civic duty” dropped by 15 points between May 2021 and February 2022 but still stands at a considerable 61%.

Individuals believing vaccination should be mandatory dropped to 45% from the previous 52%. With regards to restriction, 66% of Maltese still sustained their belief of restricting access of certain areas to those who are unvaccinated.

The survey also highlights that 55% agree with children receiving COVID-19 vaccines.

Malta's May Carnival officially announced by Minister Owen Bonnici

Minister for National Heritage, Arts and Local Government Owen Bonnici has officially announced a very special edition of Carnival in Malta, to take place in May of this year.

The ‘Karnival ta’ Malta‘ will be held between 20-22 May and is an opportunity for ‘the Maltese and Gozitan people to enjoy the event they truly lovely, especially the children’, the Minister stated.

Minister Bonnici stated that the past two years did not allow us to celebrate carnival in the way we are accustomed to as a result of the pandemic. In light of this, the actual event poster features an animated COVID-19 virus satirically chased by a booster-wielding king.

The event is held in collaboration with Festivals Malta.

Do you plan on attending this year’s carnival?
