Ridgewood NJ, Distrust of public health officials may be a major factor in people refusing to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Nearly a third of Americans believe officials are lying about vaccine safety, a number that rises to almost two-thirds among those who say they don’t intend to get vaccinated against the coronavirus.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone and online survey finds that 32% of American Adults believe public health officials are lying about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines. Forty-eight percent (48%) don’t think so, while 20% are not sure. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

  3. Most of Americans know govt is underplaying side effects. 1/3 figure is fake nuz. Everyone I know knows it. Even most liberal or scared types. They still get vaccinated because the odds of a side effect are perceived as likely as complications from Covid… but with the advantage of you not getting others sick. It’s a social sacrifice.

  4. I think I would have rather taken my chances getting Covid. I got the maderna shots. I have hurt ever since. Every joint and muscle in my body hurts. I have arthritis and it’s like it has attacked it. It’s been debilitating. The worst part doctors don’t know what they are dealing with.

  5. Totally agree Heather.
    Same symptoms, but got Pfizer.
