Why Lie If It's What You Believe In?

Harry Callaghan and I were discussing a recent study that says 20% of Canadians would lie about being vaccinated for Covid-19 if it meant they could travel or attend concerts and sporting events. (full story below)  Let me see if I have this straight. 20% of Canadians will not get the vaccine for whatever reason.  Don't get me wrong, I fully respect people's rights and choices to get vaccinated or not.  What I don't understand is, if you make the conscious choice to not get vaccinated and are committed to that choice, why hide your convictions behind a lie?  I would think that if you make the decison to not get vaccinated that you need to own it and accept that there could be some things that you may not be able to take part in for the forseeable future.  Having to lie about it tells me you're not that committed to your convictions.  I'm also struggling to understand those in the survey that are dead set against the vaccine but would get it if it meant they could travel etc.  For me it's pretty black and white - you get the vaccine and accept all that comes with it or you don't get the vaccine and accept all that comes with that decision.
