Dr. Angel Kunchev: There is no difference between mandatory and recommended vaccinations17 April 2018 | 16:00 | FOCUS News Agency
According to him, both are important and efficient. The only difference is that the state monitors more strictly and pays for the mandatory vaccinations. Dr. Kunchev gave the Rotavirus vaccine as an example of a recommended vaccination that can be done, if the parent wants to, and then the state will reimburse it. “This is the way to go for other new vaccines, too, such as the flu and possibly the chickenpox vaccines,” said Kunchev.
He pointed out that anti-vaccination movements pose more risks than the Roma community that does not vaccinate its children, as the Roma have never been actively negative. “Their problem is more about mobility, lack of health insurance, or lack of a GP. The other group, especially in the big cities, is growing and is harder to fight, as they express extreme opinions and are not willing to discuss any,” Kunchev said.
