The Doctor's Handbook service has published data from a survey among Russian physicians about their attitude to the developed vaccine against coronavirus. It turned out that the majority do not trust the effectiveness and safety of the new drug.

According to RBC, about three thousand doctors took part in the survey. Most doctors are not ready to get vaccinated against coronavirus - 52% of respondents turned out to be such. Only 24,5% of doctors agree to be vaccinated.

The main reason for mistrust of the drug is that there is currently insufficient data on its effectiveness. This opinion is shared by 66% of doctors. Another 48% said the vaccine was created in too short a time. 20% of respondents are ready to recommend vaccination to patients and friends.

Registration of the Russian vaccine against coronavirus, created by the Gamaleya Center, ended on August 11. The first vaccinations are offered to the population in the fall of this year. Social activists and experts spoke out about distrust of the drug: in their opinion, first it was necessary to complete the third phase of clinical trials.
