To solve a problem, the first condition is to understand it. Much more when the problem, in this case the failure of vaccination in our country, is complex and multiparametric.
A look at the recent Metron Analysis research for DIANEOS unlocks the "black box" of failure, which we now pay with tragic numbers of deaths and heavy hospitalizations.
First and foremost mistake, a heterogeneous social whole, the unvaccinated, we devalued it with its leveling categorization, in the "sprays", to the "sprayed". In other words, we "cemented" it in denial and turned it into a "group", in a "resistance movement", to an opponent. Therefore, we lost it and together we lost control of the pandemic.
What Metron Analysis research reveals; To the question "why do not you consider getting the Covid-19 vaccine", the answers that come from the hard core of irrationality and denial of reality are restrained. Indicatively, Only the 3,8% believes that "DNA alters", the 1,2% that "has a chip", the 0,6% because "religion does not allow it", the 1,1% because they believe that "there is no virus", the 8,9% because they think "the disease is mild".
The large mass of the unvaccinated does not base its denial on irrationality, but in fear and imperfect knowledge. The 57,8% of the unvaccinated fear that the vaccine "may be unsafe and have side effects". also, the 24,6% believes that "it will not be effective", the 5,8% is optimistic that it will not catch the disease and the 11,1% considers that he does not belong to a high risk group. Even the 25,7% who "does not believe in vaccines" fits comfortably, not in irrationality, but in a "fashion" of the last decade, before Covid, developed by doctors in the context of alternative medicine.
So if the overwhelming category of the unvaccinated are not "negative" and "sprayed", but people scared, with strong skepticism and questions, then it is obvious that a policy of approach by the organized state would not be discredited, but the exhausting attempt at persuasion, information and respond to their fears. From institutions and persons who had evidence of trust. An approach policy that would appeal to the vast majority, at least in 2/3 of the unvaccinated. Because the rest 1/3, ap’ The,what can be seen from the research, not for vaccine, but for psychiatric investigation. Instead of’ this, the gaps widened and confidence was lost, possibly irreversible.
Indicatively, in Metron Analysis research, the relationship of trust between institutions and citizens seems to have broken down.
To the question "what confidence do you have in dealing with the pandemic on a scale of 1-5", trust in government is at an all-time low, with 2,6. On the roof of the ladder is the personal doctor with 4,1, the pharmacist with 4, and international bodies (WHERE etc.) with 3,2.
If all these are findings why we lost the battle (leveling the unvaccinated-gap of trust of institutions and citizens), at the same time they can be a compass for managing the problem now and in the near future. Useful answers are photographed, the focal points on which the communication campaign should focus, the bodies and persons it is appropriate to undertake.
At the same time, the new solution agenda is unveiled at a time when the pandemic seems to be spiraling out of control.
Despite the fears of the government and the other parties to proceed with the solution of the obligation of vaccinations in critical sections of the population, citizens appear more mature.
The 75,2% accepts vaccines to be mandatory for health professionals, the 71,7% for teachers, the 68,8% for the uniformed. Even for universal obligation, the 56,4% is in favor of 42,5% against. Those who tremble at the famous cost, let's take a closer look at the numbers. So to soothe their phobias.
Maybe this is the solution so that we do not lose the next battles. Because it is good to be optimistic that we are reaching the end of the road, but there is the other point of view… That the future lasts a long time, so let's get ready for the next crucial battles, without the mistakes of the past.
