Deputy Speaker of the State Duma Tolstoy said that he supports the idea of vaccinations and the right to choose
anti-vaccine, according to the portal URA.RU.
According to the publication, Tolstoy said that he was in favor of the right to choose: to be vaccinated against covid or not. “I support the idea of vaccinations, I just want people to do them voluntarily, knowingly, and researching all medical contraindications, if any. It is necessary for a person to make a decision himself. And our business is to convince people of the need for this decision, as our president has already said about it. The decision should be voluntary, but we must help to make it, “the deputy said.
Earlier, the chief doctors of large covid hospitals in Russia were invited to the” red zones “where patients with COVID-19, known anti-vaccines, lie. Among them were Tolstoy, leaders of the Communist Party of the Russian Federation and “Fair Russia” Gennady Zyuganov and Sergei Mironov, political scientist Sergei Kurginyan, actress Maria Shukshina, singer Natalya Vetlitskaya, TV presenter Oscar Kuchera, musician Konstantin Kinchev and singer and composer Yuri Loza.
Later, the chief physician of the Moscow City Clinical Hospital No. 15 named after O. M. Filatov Valery Vechorko, where anti-vaccine patients were invited, said that the attempt to dialogue with visitors had failed.
