In Greece there is strong opposition against vaccines and any COVID-19 measures. Also, there's strong opposition against mandatory vaccination for health workers.

But I do not understand why there's such strong opposition. What is its cause?

Most opposition has the following axis:

  1. Vaccines are experimental and not fully approved, because they did not follow the traditional route of approval. The current state is a global experiment.
  2. Intentionally government closed the churches, therefore bad.
  3. Vaccinations must not be mandatory for everyone. Mandatory vaccinations and lockdowns reduce private freedom.

In the meantime health workers oppose the mandatory vaccination and state vaccination should be done in volunteer basis on each person's will.

Also, I find a huge lack of information and much information is rather fragmented. For example the Greek vaccination programm page https://emvolio.gov.gr has much less information from the cdc equivalent one: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/vaccines/your-vaccination.html

Also, the prime minister was found on the island of Ikaria in the midst of a lockdown in Spring on a house visit.

Why is there such opposition to vaccination in Greece?
