VACCINE

AND THE ANTI-VAXXERS

Will the coronavirus pandemic force anti-vaxxers and faith healers to question their views? Some may certainly do that.

But most of them may not be convinced. Vaccine hesitancy, sometimes promoted by some celebrities, may even seriously undermine a future inoculation program.

Some of the faith healers and anti-vaxxers who believe that their gods would protect them from the coronavirus do not seem to be convinced about the protection measures including social distancing and lockdowns.

The key to the social and psychological mechanism behind anti-vaxxers and the faith healers is the same as to magical thinking and various irrational behavior pattern.
