According to new research, those who suffer from anxiety are just as unwilling to get the COVID-19 vaccination as those who don’t. The findings of the study have been published in the Journal of Anxiety Disorders. The new study led by the University of Waterloo aimed to examine the relationship between hesitation to get vaccines, psychological factors associated with anxiety, and individuals’ reasoning for and against getting the COVID-19 vaccine. To conduct the study, the researchers surveyed 148 participants with and without anxiety disorders. All participants completed an online questionnaire that examined COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, along with other related variables such as conspiracy beliefs, individualism, and intolerance to uncertainty. The researchers also examined the main reasons why individuals were motivated to get the vaccine and the main reasons why they were hesitant.
