Infectionist Yevgeny Timakov explained the difference between anti-vaccines and those who do not want to be vaccinated against COVID-19. In his opinion, the former oppose such drugs in principle, while the latter doubt it, because they do not have reliable scientific information. The doctor added: in order for people to decide on the vaccine, they need to be given full information based on scientific data and statistics.

In turn, psychiatrist Alexander Fedorovich explained that there are three types of anti-vaccination. Anxious and suspicious. Such a person may doubt what is happening, see conspiracies, be afraid of chipping and total surveillance. As a rule, this is an absolute opponent of vaccinations. The second type is people who do not trust the authorities, officials and the health care system. They believe that “vaccination is politics, economics, whatever, but not medicine.” The third type of people is prone to rational thinking. They listen to the opinion of experts and high-level specialists and make their choice based on the arguments.
