In connection with the continuation of the Covid-19 pandemic, the relevance of information promotion of anti-pandemic measures is becoming more urgent. Public opinion on these measures is mixed; there is an active movement of the so-called anti-vaxers. The article explores the possibility of involving a group of plasma donors as potential opinion leaders in the informational promotion of measures to combat the pandemic. To determine the potential of this group in promoting measures to combat the pandemic, it is necessary to find out their attitude to these measures and assess the prospects for promoting these measures. The article presents an analysis of the results of a sociological survey of plasma donors (n = 542). 25% of respondents consider mass vaccination the most effective anti-pandemic agent, 21% - mask regime, 20% - disinfection of transport and public places. Most of the respondents believe that information from scientific research can convince people to vaccinate, and 12% are counting on a wide information campaign. The results of the pairwise correlation and the constructed classification tree show that slightly more than a third of the respondents can act as the core of the information promotion of mass vaccination and other measures to combat the pandemic: these are plasma donors with completed secondary or higher education, who are 1) guided by the opinion of medical professionals and WHO representatives and are 2) optimistic assess the readiness of their environment for vaccination.
