> “We live in an age where the opinion of professionals in any industry can be easily dispelled by some famous person,” They don’t even need to be famous – but it certainly seems to “help”. I actually really like this idea, but I’m not sure how effective it will be in real life. The people against the vaccine are pretty set in their opinion, and I’d expect them to ignore the enlightened voices and start spreading rumours of them being bribed or something. Hopefully I’m just overally pessimistic… but I doubt it.

As a Russian, I can say that people would vaccinate a lot more if they were given a choice of vaccine. We only have our own vaccines available and almost everyone here doesn’t have any trust in our government so it’s only natural that people don’t vaccinate. More than that just one of our three vaccines seems to have any positive effect (Sputnik V) and you can’t choose the vaccine for yourself. If people were able to choose the vaccine and to vaccinate with Pfizer, Moderna or something else which is recognized by the WHO as a working vaccine the situation would have been a lot better.
