The paper concerns the issue of perception of various aspects of vaccination against COVID-19 by representatives of two social groups - employees of medical institutions and blood plasma donors. Since both of these groups are institutionally and / or practically connected with the healthcare industry, the authors of the article consider them as potential agents of influence on the mass consciousness in the context of the formation of the immunization discourse. Based on the research (a mass survey of representatives of target groups) in Kharkiv region (Ukraine), an analysis of the perception of such aspects of vaccination as safety, compulsory, effectiveness and no alternative is carried out. The data is used to build a cluster model dividing groups with different attitudes towards vaccination - Skeptics, Conformists, Loyalists and Supporters. The study was carried out within the framework of the research theme No. 0121U109814 “Sociological and Mathematical Modeling of the Effectiveness of Managing Social and Epidemic Processes to Ensure the National Security of Ukraine.” The research was carried out in two parallel stages and was based on the use of quantitative methods - face-to-face interview.
