The study investigates the anti-vaccine attitude and the attitude towards COVID-19 in Turkey. Within the scope of the study, an online questionnaire was applied to 564 volunteers with a convenience sampling technique between 21/05/2021 and 01/06/2021. Analysis was performed with descriptive and inferential statistical analysis techniques and a multiple probit model. As a result of the estimation, it has been determined that negative claims about the vaccine have an increasing effect on the probability of being vaccinated or undecided, according to the probability of being vaccinated. It has been seen that it has a reducing effect on their thoughts about making the vaccine compulsory. Opposition to the COVID-19 vaccine has become global, and people's behaviors endanger their health, public health, and global health due to the following unscientific theories that need to be further examined scientifically. In particular, awareness-raising activities for individuals, more efficient use of social media channels for communication, support of countries' academic studies on the subject, and transparent sharing of scientific data with the public will change the attitude toward vaccines. When we look at the literature, it has been seen that social media channels are neglected in the vaccination attitude. However, it was found to be an essential factor in line with the findings obtained from the study. For this reason, it is thought that it will contribute to future studies.
