Over 60 Percent of Americans Say They Will Not Get a First Generation Coronavirus Vaccine

by Andrew Trunsky


Sixty-one percent of Americans surveyed now say that they would not get a first-generation coronavirus vaccine as soon as it available, an Axios-Ipsos poll shows.

The percentage is eight points lower than a month ago, a drop that is reflected among both Democrats and Republicans, the Ipsos index shows. The United States is approaching 200,000 coronavirus deaths, according to a Johns Hopkins University database.

Only 43% of Democrats surveyed said that they would receive a vaccine as soon as it became available, down 13 points from August. Only a third of Republicans surveyed said the same, reflecting an eight-point drop from a month ago, Axios reported.

Most Americans not only expect to pay little out of pocket for a vaccine but have little willingness to spend money to receive the vaccine, according to Ipsos. Fifty-one percent of those surveyed said that they would not pay more than $50 for a vaccine, and 33% said that they were unwilling to pay anything at all.

The survey also represents a deepening partisan rift regarding the pandemic. While 69% of Republicans trust President Donald Trump to deliver accurate COVID-19 information, only 7% of Democrats said the same, the survey shows. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden was trusted by 80% of Democrats but only 12% of Republicans. Independents break towards the former vice president 43%-27%.

Only 31% of voters trust Trump to deliver accurate information, compared to 46% who said they trust Biden. The metric comes after a recent Politico report alleged that the Trump administration interfered with the Centers for Disease Control’s reports on the virus and recommended testing guidelines, leading some prominent Democrats to announce their hesitancy towards a vaccine as well.

While Trump has floated the possibility of a vaccine being ready before the November election, administration officials including Dr. Anthony Fauci and CDC Director Robert Redfield have said that a vaccine may not be created and distributed until mid-2021.

The margin of error for the poll is 3.0-3.4 percentage points.

    Anyone fool that takes this vaccine better make sure the life insurance premiums are up to date.

    We already know that the perverse, financially incentivized death certificate rules the CDC created in March to fraudulently attribute deaths to the Coronahoax resulted in a 90% false attribution. So give it up on the Johns Hopkins BS (Rockefeller population control nut job founded and Event 201 sponsor). That number is less than 20,000. And since the PCR test is garbage for diagnostics, it is probably less than that. If hospitals were bribed $19,000 to list hangnails as the cause of death like they were with Coronahoax, what would happen?

    “Only 31% of voters trust Trump to deliver accurate information, compared to 46% who said they trust Biden.”

    In one of the Primary debates, Joe Biden stated that 150 MILLION Americans had been killed by guns because Bernie Sanders voted with the majority to give gun makers immunity from liability for the misuse or criminal use of their products. And very recently he said that over 200 MILLION Americans would have died before he finished speaking because Trump failed to address COVID–19 like he would have.

    Is it that Joe Biden, they trust more for accurate information??

    By the way, if gun manufacturers can be sued out of business, who will make the guns which protect Joe Biden and other ruling class elites? Oh, yeah, imports from Joe’s friends in China.
