52-year-old actor Matthew McConaughey spoke on one of the most pressing topics today – about vaccination against coronavirus. At the recent online summit The New York Times DealBook McConaughey said that he did not consider it necessary to vaccinate children against the COVID-19 virus. The actor noted that he and his wife Camila Alves have already been vaccinated against the coronavirus, but so far they do not dare to vaccinate their own children, 13-year-old Levi, 11-year-old Vida and eight-year-old Livingston.
I cannot approve of vaccinations for young children. I still want more information about this. I myself am vaccinated, my wife was also vaccinated. I did this not because someone told me that I had to, but because I decided so myself. Do I think there is some kind of conspiracy theory? Hell no! We must all end these conversations. There is no conspiracy about vaccines. But I'll tell you what – right now I'm against vaccinating my three children,
– said Matthew.

The opinion of the Hollywood actor about the vaccination of children against the coronavirus has already been commented on by the US surgeon general Vivek Merti. He said that it was high time to dispel the myth that the coronavirus is completely harmless to young children, and also, contrary to McConaughey's point of view, advocated their vaccination.
Tests have shown that vaccines are 90 percent effective against coronavirus on vaccinated children aged 5 to 11, and are also completely safe.
– said Murty.
Earlier, many stars have already spoken out on the topic of vaccination against coronavirus. So, the Russian actor Yegor Beroev compared QR codes on vaccinations with Nazi documents, and the famous tennis player Marat Safin even called the coronavirus pandemic a world conspiracy to chip the population. Maria Kozhevnikova and Irena Ponaroshku also have an ambiguous opinion about vaccination: they both believe that vaccinations should be done exclusively on a voluntary basis and without any coercion.
