Vaccines for the novel coronavirus are still months away, perhaps even a year-and-a-half but are being tested in several different countries. 

Our question today is whether you think think you will accept one.

A study published this week by Research Co. suggests 27 per cent of Canadians wouldn't. Findings released April 21 said only 73 per cent of people would "definitely" or "probably" take a vaccine once developed.

We want to get a sense of that number locally, so head on into the poll and let us know.

EDITOR'S NOTE: We have now closed the comments section on this story. All further comments will be deleted. Our polls are never scientific, though we do try to learn something about how our local audience fits into a larger picture on a subject like this. Unfortunately, it appears this poll has been overwhelmed by anti-vaxxers far and wide and there's no way to weed out folks from outside Kamloops and the Okanagan, so take the results for what they're worth.
