Poll: 28% of Americans know someone killed by Covid vax side effects | Eastern North Carolina Now

A new Rasmussen poll finds that 28% of Americans personally know of someone who died from the side effects of Covid vaccination, and 10% are unsure if someone they personally know died of those vax side effects.

49% of Americans beleive it is likely that Covid vaccines have "caused a significant number of unexplained deaths", compared to 37% who said it was not likely and 14% unsure.. 

48% said there were "legitimate reasons to be concerned" about the safety of the Covid vaccines while 37% said expressing those concerns were just "spreading conspiracy theories" and 15% were unsure.


With the neavy censorship by the corporate media (self-styled "mainstream media") on this subject, it is amazing that this information is getting out to so many Americans.

All good points CV. I took the vaccine 4 times now and each time the paperwork said the shot was not fully approved and for emergency use. In big bold print. It wasn’t hidden.
It was a tough decision but at the time the right one for me. I’m just glad a lot of people made the same choice as my life is pretty much back to normal.

A proven, fully tested vaccine is one thing, but an experimental vaccine from a new process that is far from fully tested is quite another, and the mRNA vaccines for Covid fall into the latter category. No one should be compeeled to take them, and government agencies that promote them should give full discloaures and warnings. As it turned out, the herd immunity approach, that was proposed early on by one of the world's leading virologists and epidemiologists at Oxford University, was the best way to go, not the totalitarian lockdowns. Sweden proved that herd immunity worked best. Its public health authorities are to be commended, unlike those like Fauci who followed Red China. Chine is proving right now that lockdowns are a time bomb that will eventually blow up on you.

Jann, I can appreciate the thoughtful response. However we often do insist people get vaccinated. Some people have always questioned it from smallpox to polio; my personal rights vs the common good. Covid is funny because even though over a million Americans died from it, most who get it don't die.
That said, President Trump was wise to push for vaccine development because it was the only path back to a normal life. You may decide not to take the vaccine but the least we can do is thank those who did.

I still cant figure out this basic principle of public health and wellness got mixed up in politics and crackpot conspiracy theories.

If people wanna get vaccinated, it's their right to do so. This is America but don't force those who have not been vaccinated to get the vaccine. Some of us have done A LOT of research and are not willing to put our bodies under this government experiment. If your willing to play and take chances with the experiment, that's your right as an American but don't put a guilt trip on the rest of us.
Most vaccines take years of experiments before they put it out on the public. This was rushed way to fast for me, so I'd rather not.

Actually most of us know someone who has died from covid. The anti-vax movement is the the single dumbest movement on the planet. Most of us are alive today because of good nutrition, antibiotics and vaccines. Thats a fact. The Covid 19 vaccine was rushed, but saved millions of lives. And continues to save lives. Yes there will be side affects. Unknowns. Complications for some.Nothing is perfect.
My advice, get vaccinated, avoid large crowds and wear a mask when you cant. Thats about the best you can do.
