    Biden-Harris Feeding Doubts As To 2020 Coronavirus Vaccine, Poll Shows Public Concerned

    Biden-Harris Feeding Doubts As To 2020 Coronavirus Vaccine, Poll Shows Public Concerned

    Majority of people now believe a vaccine released this year would be “rushed through” — echoing Biden-Harris campaign rhetoric.

    A new YouGov poll released this week conclusively shows that the media’s and left’s deliberate undermining of a potential pre-presidential election Wuhan Coronavirus vaccine is having the intended impact on voters.

    CBS News reports:

    Skepticism about getting a coronavirus vaccine has grown since earlier this summer, and most voters say if a vaccine were made available this year, their first thought would be that it was rushed through without enough testing.

    Just 21% of voters nationwide now say they would get a vaccine as soon as possible if one became available at no cost, down from 32% in late July. Most would consider it but would wait to see what happens to others before getting one.

    Two-thirds of voters think if a vaccine were announced as soon as this year, their initial thought would be that it was rushed through without enough testing, rather than a scientific achievement that happened quickly. Among those who feel it would have been rushed, just 13% say they would get a vaccine for the coronavirus as soon as possible if one were available.

    Here’s a deeper dive into the numbers:

    Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and his vice presidential running mate Sen. Kamala Harris have been among the many on the left and in the mainstream media who have worked to spin ridiculous conspiracy theories in recent weeks about the efficacy and effectiveness of a potential vaccine, suggesting without evidence that Trump has been deliberately putting pressure on scientists to skip safety protocols and approve a vaccine before Election Day.

    In an interview last week, Dr. Anthony Fauci told Kaiser Health News he was “not concerned about political pressure” and said it’s possible a vaccine could be made available sooner rather than later if clinical trials showed results that were overwhelmingly positive.

    The YouGov poll’s findings sparked a discussion on Twitter of just how the politicization of the vaccine by Democrats and journalists alike will have “horrible ripple effects” on down the line:

    In a nutshell, what Trump’s political opposition in the press and on the left are doing is feeding a dangerous Democrat-led anti-vaxxer movement not on the basis of science, but instead purely on the basis of their dogmatic belief in the Orange Man Bad narrative.

    That tactic, in addition to their relentless efforts at discrediting Trump’s promotion of hydroxychloroquine as a possible virus treatment, lends more evidence to the suggestions by some that Democrats and the media – in spite of their “do something!” mantra – actually have not wanted a treatment or vaccine approved for the Wuhan virus until well after the election for political reasons.

    This is a troubling avenue that an objective media would be very keen on exploring. Unfortunately, liberally biased reporters here are too busy actively feeding into the conspiracy theories about a “rushed” vaccine themselves to engage in actual investigative journalism on the matter.

    Sixth grade health class was a very long time ago but not forgotten.

    What concerns me is how much false credibility this will give the anti-vaxx morons. If they frighten people into not getting any vaccinations for any disease, such as MMR and smallpox, we will all suffer the consequences of their foolishness.

    As for me, I’ll continue with the flu shots every fall as in the past ~50 years along with others that will prompt my body to make antibodies for diseases that, at my age, would be very serious. I will also pay more attention to medical professionals than to the easily excited lay people, especially the “journalists” who seem to know very little about their subjects but write about them anyway.

    Has anybody noticed that polio isn’t such a problem as in the past? Why, I wonder, might that be?

    A CBS poll? Give me a break.

    I don’t know what adverse reactions the anti-vaxx conspiracists have prepared everyone for, but the short answer is VACCINES DON’T CAUSE ADVERSE REACTIONS IN THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF THE POPULATION. Sorry, for the all caps, but really needed to emphasize that. Mild swelling at an injection site, temporary drowsiness, or even a mild cold are not “severe” reactions compared to being hooked up to a ventilator and needing a kidney transplant (to name a few of the worst possible Covid symptoms). By the most recent count, there are 6 vaccine candidates in Stage 3 trials with the FDA. That means they have ruled out severe reactions already, and they are studying how effective they are in large scale human trials. Stage 4 is basically deploying the vaccine. I know 9/11 is international conspiracy day, but do not let the silly anti-science mindset of anti-vaxxers pollute your otherwise reasonable minds.
