American public calls for safety check on Covid vaccines

American public calls for safety check on Covid vaccines. By Adam Creighton.

Almost a 60 per cent of Americans want congress to investigate the safety of Covid-19 vaccines and 7 per cent, or around 12 million, say they have experienced a “major side effect”, according to two new polls that reveal the stark contrast between popular and official views of the Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson and Johnson shots.

In the first series of polls to ask the American public about the effects of the vaccines, more than a quarter claimed they knew someone whose death they believed was “caused by the side effects of Covid-19 vaccines”, including 35 per cent of those aged 18 to 39, more than double the share of those aged over 65.

“Surprisingly, no other reputable pollster has bothered to ask these questions yet,” said Mark Mitchell, chief pollster at Rasmussen Reports, which conducted two polls, which had a margin of error of 3 per cent, in December and January.

The two polls point to a growing discontent with the Covid-19 vaccines amid a spike in sudden deaths and unexplained injuries of celebrities, journalists and sports stars, including a claim from Tesla chief executive and Twitter owner Elon Musk last Friday (Saturday AEDT).

“I had major side effects from my second booster shot. Felt like I was dying for several days. Hopefully, no permanent damage, but I dunno,” Mr Musk tweeted over the weekend, adding that his cousin “who is young & in peak health, had a serious case of myocarditis (and) had to go to the hospital”. …

Demand for Covid-19 vaccines in the US has collapsed: 15 per cent of eligible Americans aged over 5 have been vaccinated with the new bivalent booster, compared with 85 per cent who received at least one dose of the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson and Johnson vaccines approved under emergency authorisation in late 2020. …

Two recent studies in Indiana and Ohio have found that receiving multiple Covid-19 shots, while offering modest protection against illness, made vaccine recipients two to three times more likely to contract Covid-19.

Reality closes in on the propagandists and profiteers.
