Poll: 69 Percent of Americans Worried Fast-Tracked COVID-19 Vaccines Won’t Be Safe

Poll: 69 Percent of Americans Worried Fast-Tracked COVID-19 Vaccines Won’t Be Safe

Numerous polls have been conducted during the last few months asking Americans if they would get a COVID-19 vaccine were it approved by the U.S. government and offered to the public. Polls in April-May 2020 showed that about half or more of those surveyed said they would get the vaccine. More recent polling, however, has shown a decline in the percentage of positive responses.

For example, in a nationwide poll of 1,000 adults taken by the Associated Press and the NORC Center for Public Affairs Research at the University of Chicago during May 14-18, 49 percent of respondents said they would get vaccinated, while 20 percent said they would not. Thirty-one percent said they were unsure.1 Previous polls conducted in April and early May by YouGov/Yahoo! News, Morning Consult, and ABC News/Ipsos had registered even higher favorable responses for the percentage of Americans intending to get COVID-19 vaccines when they are licensed.

Only 43 Percent of Americans Intend to Get COVID-19 Vaccine Immediately

The April/May 2020 YouGov/Yahoo! News poll found that 55 percent of people surveyed said they would get a COVID-19 vaccine once it is licensed, while 19 percent said they would not and 26 percent said they were not sure. In the poll by Morning Consult, 64 percent said they would get the vaccine, compared to 14 percent who said they would not and 22 percent who said they were unsure.2 3 4

Of those polled by ABC News/Ipsos, 74 percent said they were either “somewhat” or “very likely” to get the vaccine, while 25 percent said they were either “not so likely” or “not likely at all” to get it.2 3 4

On July 26-27, a poll of 1,000 people conducted by WebMD showed that only 43 percent would get the vaccine during the first year it is available. An additional 30 percent said they were not sure and 28 percent said they would not get the vaccine.5 According to WebMD:

Of those who expressed uncertainty about getting vaccinated, 78% cited concerns about potential side effects, with 15% saying they believed the vaccine would not be effective in protecting against the virus.5

Worries About COVID-19 Vaccine Fast Tracking and Side Effects Main Reason for Hesitancy

Side effects, including serious (Grade 3) ones, have been reported during human clinical trials on experimental COVID-19 vaccines being developed by several leading pharmaceutical companies, including Moderna, Inc., CanSino Biologics, Inc., and a joint venture between Pfizer, Inc. and BioNTech SE.6

The latest poll conducted by YouGov/Yahoo! News during July 28-30 found that only 41 percent of those surveyed said they would get a COVID-19 vaccine when it is available, while 27 percent they would not and 32 said they were not sure.7 8

Data journalist Hoang Nguyen of YouGov said that 69 percent of those surveyed are “concerned about the safety of a vaccine being fast-tracked through the approval process.” Among those who do not trust health authorities such as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), “that level of concern soars to 81 percent,” Nguyen noted.7

Natalie Dean, PhD, assistant professor of biostatistics at the University of Florida, said:

I’m a vaccine researcher, and even I would place myself in the ‘not sure’ bucket. What we have right now is a collection of animal data, immune response data and safety data based on early trials and from similar vaccines for other diseases. The evidence that would convince me to get a COVID-19 vaccine, or to recommend that my loved ones get vaccinated, does not yet exist.8

    only 69%, good grief the other 21% must be severely limited of mind…….how can anyone think this is a good idea even if you’re extremely pro vaccine!

    Well, I sure wouldn’t trust this vaccine………like I don’t trust any of the others. I feel sorry for the poor people that are volunteering for this vaccine. Will we ever hear what happened to them?

    I am wondering why anyone who is healthy would get a vaccine ? Here in the UK, Health England removed covid 19 from their list of ‘ High consequence infectionary disease’ list. This took place on the 19th March. The initial death rates were high because in the UK, like in New York, deliberately moved Covid 19 patients out of hospital and into care homes leading to thousands of deaths. Many people who died, did not die from Covid, but from comorbidity problems that were exacerbated by it. Also care homes have a high flu vaccination rate, and evidence shows that flu vaccination acts as a trojan horse for coronavirus. Take a look at the Health England document. https://www.gov.uk/guidance/high-consequence-infectious-diseases-hcid#status-of-covid-19

    I don’t care if it’s perfect. I will not be getting poked by Gates and Big Pharma…NEVER! You cannot get immunity from something that does not exist. This is NOT a flu virus and has never been found to exist even after autopsies. It is some kind of manufactured bug that attacks weakened immune systems. That is why 90% of deaths occur in people aged over 70. I haven’t had a flu shot in 40 years and haven’t been seriously ill (flu)in over 25 years. They call this a medical emergency, yet the masks you buy in the store specifically say (on the package) they are not to be used for medical purposes. We are being duped and people are idiots for thinking a crummy mask will save them. They may still die from other reasons like several people I know have done since this fake pandemic started.

    It will be voluntary, at least at first, but eventually through shame and blame or other more abrupt methods of intimidation such as forced isolation or other curtailments of freedom, they simply will not take no for an answer.

    I also think they are fast tracking this. A true vaccine you can trust takes years to develop. I am trying to convince my family to read more about what they are putting in this shot. Does it really change your dna? I have to keep reading myself, but is the truth out there.

    It’s portrayed by the media (motive unknown but probably multiple and nefarious) as a monstrous and mysterious killer. For the healthy very similar to seasonal flu. For those with underlying conditions ravaging but not mysterious. These unfortunates experience massive systemic inflation known as sepsis. This is the immune system on overdrive attacking any and all organs as if they were pathogens. Deadly for sure but not a “germ” at this point. Solution? Learn and heed the “terrain” school of thought. Through that lens vaccines will be rightly seen not as part of the solution but a big part of the problem!

    Unfortunately between the government, Big Pharma and the Food and Drug Administration we are in a mess. God gave us what we needed, a beautiful world with healthy water and soil. We have polluted our earth to such a degree with pesticides, herbicides and garbage that our food is no longer healthy. Monsanto is a huge problem putting out all the RoundUp. Our governrment has allowed crap to be put into our foods, instead of ensuring healthy food for our people, it is riddled with chemical additives, toxins and sugar. If our food was healthier our people would be healthier, and we wouldn’t have as many issues with virus’ because our immune systems would be strong. There is no quick fix for this. We need better leaders who care about people, our land, food supply and getting back to the basics, which is healthy soil, and wholesome nutrition. Until that happens, people are gonna be sick and will be dying from illnesses. This virus has been tampered with and it seems to be weaponized, so it’s not a so called normal virus. There is no way I am getting a vaccine. I will take my chances with boosting my immune system and trying to eat as healthy as I can and getting sun, exercise and rest. The pharmaceutical companies make a fortune on pushing flu vaccines every year. How safe is that? My mom and I got flu vaccines 25 years ago and both ended up with autoimmune problems immediately after. Do not believe that these vaccines help you. Good healthy fun and a healthy lifestyle is what is good for your body.

    Jeanie, I would add that if you do more research you will see that Bill Gates funds everything wrong in our world today. I totally believe he is the devil himself. He funds Monsanto, all of the vaccines, and chemtrails!!! He is funding the chemtrails because he believes that if we spray enough poison in the sky that we can cut down the amount of sun on the earth to cure global warming. WTH!!!!! He seriously needs to be jailed along with Fauci for crimes against humanity. I hope more people start to wake up and see them for who they really are!!!

    I will not get a ‘c-19 virus’ vaccination. And know of very very few people that would.

    Trust what is in a vile filled with something you know absolutely nothing about its ingredients?……NOT.

    40 yrs ago when I began to learn about vaccinations I said ” they wouldn’t hurt us’……….. now 40 yrs later —- yeeeah right.

    A market is created slow but sure.

    You can neither see, touch, taste or feel it. We are suppose to assume ‘they’ are amiable and trust the industry where it came from.

    Sure.

    If vaccinations would not have gotten out of control over the past 55 years– we would be living in a much much different society.

    I hope that more people will start to become aware of and trust the intelligence inside the human body that is always in movement toward maintaining health, balance, coherence and vitality. This is the same intelligence behind all creation. This is the same intelligence that operates our immune systems.
    It is unfortunate that bad policies are being put into place from a skewed or insufficient understanding of medicine, health and the role(s) of a virus. The sad part is that many of the fear based responses to our global situation are being done under the guise of public health and safety. If public health and safety were truly a priority for the government, many chemical, medical and food policies would have changed long ago.
    I recommend this very inspiring interview with Dr. Zach Bush for a big picture, unifying perspective as well as some tidbits from his observations as a doctor pertaining to the virus. He has other video interviews as well that discuss the roles of virus… very fascinating. Enjoy and be well. https://youtu.be/V_EDQSp5ayU

    I hope that means these 69 percent will still be smart enough not to fall when the poison injection eventually comes to their door – via the military?? Thanks Trump!
    Gonna be awesome! Don’t let (them) in if (they) come to your door dear reader!
    If (they) dare to darken your path – Inform them (military) that you will resist and that posse comatatus act (or however it’s spelled) declares that the military is not permitted to act against its own population.
    But please be advised dear reader that this is the NEW WORLD ORDER we are now entering and the powers that be intend on either sickening you or worse as they depopulate this earth plane -which they believe they own. The fewer there are of us – the more easy to enslave and control. Be assured that the degenerate sick minds that designed and are implementing this dystopic reality are psychopathic killers masquerading as saviors. It’s quite demented but also understand they are laughing at our ignorant compliance all the way to he bank. The truth isn’t very pretty -is it..!

    Please wait for at least 6-12 months to get any new vaccine. That will give time for glitches to be found and hopefully, eliminated.

      nope, you think these scumbags will change anything? Its all about money they dont care if you live or die…..look at Oxycontin, Thalidomide etc they were on the market a lot longer than needed caused to many deaths disfigurements, look at Johnson and Johnson with their talc they knew for YEARS that it was causing cancers and people were using it liberally on their children and only just recently has it been investigated from huge pressure. Look at Glycosphate and Monosanto, still being used even though lawsuits have been won and they know it is killing but it is still being used, but you think they will make changes and iron out problems NO WAY. Also why would you bring something to market that you are going to force on the entire world when you know it is garbage and going to kill, it will mess with your DNA this is purposefully done because it will feed money to their scumbag industry they want you sick and in agony and dying reliant on them………they wouldnt know health if it came up and punched them in the face, they deal with sickness and death only.
