(Natural News) A survey has found that more than a quarter of Americans who are not vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) believe the vaccines pose a greater threat to their health and wellbeing than the virus itself.
The survey was conducted jointly by research firm YouGov and mainstream media outlet Yahoo News. The survey was held between July 13 to 15 on 1,715 American adults. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
According to the results of the survey, 29 percent of unvaccinated Americans believe the experimental COVID-19 vaccines that were developed in under a year are more dangerous to a person’s health than the coronavirus itself.
Thirty-seven percent of the unvaccinated said the coronavirus was the greater threat to their health. The remaining 35 percent said they were unsure. (Related: Survey: 1 in 5 Americans believe coronavirus vaccines contain microchips.)
The answers of unvaccinated Americans stand in stark contrast to their vaccinated counterparts, 83 percent of whom said the virus was the greater risk to their health and that of the general public. Five percent of the vaccinated adults said the vaccines they took were a greater threat to their health than the virus. The remaining 12 percent were unsure.
When the unvaccinated Americans surveyed were asked to pick the “most important reason” they have not been vaccinated, 45 percent said they do not trust the vaccines.
Twelve percent said they are not worried about getting the coronavirus. Nine percent said they already had COVID-19 and therefore do not need to get vaccinated.
Four percent said they lack “easy access” to the vaccines and three percent said they are unable to get enough time off work to get vaccinated.
