Perhaps l should be more specific Perce?
By important l was meaning the interlectual fraternity rather than
mere political leaders?
For instance , l know GP doctors that wear all the anti covid gear and
look like medieval knights when on duty, but who have not had their
jabs yet? And university lecturers that are simply opposed to
vaccinations for some reason !!
It seems to me that a high percentage of well educated people are
anti Vaxer's ??
However l am open to correction on this !!

Really?
That's the complete opposite of my personal experience and TBH it does make me wonder if you do indeed know any medical professionals or "well-educated people" because my own (considerable) experience suggests these to be the people most-able to interpret research findings and so to be extremely pro-vaccination too.

No doubt there will be the very occasional detractor among them who is anti-vaccine but I have yet to come across a single doctor who has not been vaccinated (even because of medical reasons), and to be quite blunt I personally wouldn't be putting any trust in any medical professional who was anti-vaccination.
Equally I would have to question the intelligence of any supposedly well-educated person who is an "anti-vaxer" too, but each to their own I suppose.

I queued for two minutes, filled the form, queued for another two minutes, got jabbed, sat around for another 15 minutes.

This was done at a local community centre. I'm surprised to hear some had it done at a clinic, healthcentre.

So I've just googled first world countries, and lots of maps like this appear.
