Doctors agreed that the anti-vaccination boom among some Russians was the reason for the increase in cases of measles.
Anti-vaxxers are found among young people, especially mothers, as well as among the elderly population, who have read pseudo-scientific articles about the dangers of vaccination. To date, this is included in the list of reasons for the increase in measles cases in the Physician’s Directory survey. This is exactly what 33.4% of the surveyed doctors think, writes RBC.
Plus, an important role in the growth of confidence in vaccines is played by work with the population, which is provided with reliable information about the need for immunology, the prevention of dangerous diseases, and the details of creating vaccines.
Most are sure that now the situation with measles in the country is calm or moderate. That is, there is no reason to compare with COVID-19.
