Antipathy towards the unvaccinated by the vaccinated is only high among individuals who are not acquainted.


Although antipathy is indeed highest among people with no contact with the outgroups (n = 18,270, AMCE = 15 percentage points, 95% confidence interval = 13–16, z = 20.36, P < 0.001), it is substantial across all contact levels (AMCEs = 5–12 percentage points, z ≥ 2.4, P < 0.05).
