(Tea Party 247) – A brand spanking new poll from Reuters/Ipsos has been published and it reveals that almost a quarter of Americans have no interest in taking the coronavirus vaccine once one is developed and approved. That might seem like quite a few folks, but when you look at how many are actually are interested or “somewhat” interested, it will blow your mind.
Apparently, 66 percent of individuals polled are giving some serious thought to getting the vaccine once it is made available. These folks have no idea just what they might be putting inside their bodies with this thing. Fear has pushed them to the brink of being ready to accept anything that gives them a possible solution to avoid this illness.
Here’s more from Newswars:
Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, said “It’s a little lower than I thought it would be with all the attention to COVID-19,” adding “I would have expected somewhere around 75 percent.”
The Reuters report notes that health experts believe “at least 70% of Americans would need to be immune through a vaccine or prior infection to achieve what is known as “herd immunity,” when enough people are resistant to an infectious disease to prevent its spread.”
Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine noted that “It’s not surprising a significant percentage of Americans are not going to take the vaccine because of the terrible messaging we’ve had, the absence of a communication plan around the vaccine and this very aggressive anti-vaccine movement.”
The poll also found that a total of 36 percent of those who responded to the survey said they would be less willing to take the vaccine if President Trump said it was safe. Obviously, these are the same kind of people who are in league with Democrats and on board with their strategy of opposing the president no matter what he says or does. These people are idiots. Don’t be like these people.
A week ago, Trump announced “Operation Warp Speed,” to fast-track the development and distribution of a coronavirus vaccine by January 2021, tapping experts and resources in science, medicine, the military, and the private sector.
Trump has suggested that the military will be deployed to distribute the vaccine, but has suggested that it will remain voluntary, noting that it will be for those “who want to get it,” and “Not everyone is going to want to get it.”
Of course not everyone wants to get it. We don’t really know what they make these vaccines from. Besides, in the case of coronaviruses, we’ve tried to make vaccines for them before and they are largely ineffective. Why would we subject ourselves to possible suffering without some sort of high guarantee it would work? And that kind of information won’t be available for a long, long time.
We’ll just have to wait and see how this all plays out once the vaccine is available.
