Three in 10 Americans have not received any Chinese coronavirus vaccine, despite coercive government efforts and attempts to enforce mandates and restrictions, a poll by The Economist/YouGov found.
The survey asked respondents to indicate which statement best described them.
While a majority, 71%, said they had received “at least one injection from ANY manufacturer of the COVID-19 vaccine”, three in ten, 29%, said they had not.
The figure is highest among independents, 39% of whom said they had not received any coronavirus vaccine. 35% of Republicans said they also had not received a vaccine, and 14% of Democrats said the same.
Trump voters are much less likely to say they also received a coronavirus vaccine, as 34% said they had not, compared to 91% of Biden voters in 2020 who said they received at least a vaccine.
The survey was conducted Aug. 28-30, 2022 among 1,500 adult U.S. citizens and comes as some across the country are on their fourth shot.
After months of controversy, it’s now a well-established fact that vaccines themselves don’t actually stop transmission of the virus – a claim President Joe Biden has made during the pandemic.
At a CNN town hall in July 2021, Biden spread misinformation, claiming that vaccinated people would not contract the virus:
But again, one last thing. I… we don’t tell you enough about it, I don’t think. One last thing that’s really important is this: we’re not in a position where we think any virus – including the Delta virus, which is much more transmissible and more deadly to un–unvaccinated people– the vi- – the various shots people are getting now cover that. They are – are you okay. You won’t – you won’t get COVID if you have these vaccines [emphasis added].
Biden would continue to to suggestmonths later that vaccinated people were not spreading the disease as public health officials continued to beg the Americas to get vaccinated.
Ironically, the quadruple-vaxed Biden would eventually contract the coronavirus.
