Only half of Britons would definitely have Covid-19 vaccination

Introduction – Aug 9, 2020

The survey findings, below, show that the powers that be have a major problem. Not only is there mounting scepticism about Covid-19. Despite a relentless media barrage of stories about a “deadly pandemic”, there is growing opposition to the idea of getting vaccinated.
To make matters worse the survey also found growing “belief in conspiracy theories and mistrust of government, authority and science.”
Nor is this confined to a fringe minority. Almost as many questioned said they “definitely not” get vaccinated (16%) as they as who said they would (20%).
So opposition to getting vaccinated is substantial before one has even been tested or approved. What’s more, despite the best efforts of the media and the pharmaceutical giants, we are confident that this will only grow with time. Ed.

 Only half the population of Britain definitely would accept being vaccinated against Covid-19. That is the shock conclusion of a group of scientists and pollsters who have found that only 53% of a test group of citizens said they would be certain or very likely to allow themselves to be given a vaccine against the disease if one becomes available.

By contrast, one in six (16%) said they would definitely not or would be unlikely to accept a vaccine, according to research by King’s College London and Ipsos Mori. In addition, it was found that one in five (20%) said they would only be “fairly likely” to go ahead with inoculation.

The study found vaccine rejection was strongest among those whose beliefs reflect greater scepticism about science and who are less concerned about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic. Likely refusal was also linked to those who tended to be less willing to wear face masks and who said they got most of their information about the disease from WhatsApp and other social media outlets.

There was also a significant age divide in responses with 22% of those in the 16-24 and 25-34 age groups saying they would be unlikely or definitely would not accept a vaccine compared with only 11% among 55-75 year-olds.

The trends revealed by the study – which was based on 2,237 interviews with UK residents aged 16-75 and which was carried out online in mid-July – have triggered dismay among scientists. “Misperceptions about vaccines are among our most directly damaging beliefs, and they’re clearly influencing people’s intentions during the coronavirus crisis,” said prof Bobby Duffy, director of King’s College London’s the Policy Institute, which led the study.

“While one in six in the UK say they are unlikely to or definitely won’t get a potential vaccine against Covid-19, this rises to around a third or more among certain groups, with a clear link to belief in conspiracy theories and mistrust of government, authority and science.”

This point was backed by Gideon Skinner, research director at Ipsos Mori. “Almost a quarter of 16-34-year-olds are saying they’re unlikely to get vaccinated for Covid-19 if one becomes available. That is deeply concerning and should serve as an important staging post for the government to combat misperceptions about vaccinations, particularly among young people.”

  1. One unintended consequence of the plandemic has been the raising of scepticism levels among the public concerning many aspects of the handling of the so-called pandemic.
    From the very start, the fear mongering appeared far more excessive than the threat from what in reality is no more deadly than flu. The Government’s response was a shambles and the daily briefings from pocket Hitler Hancock were hardly reassuring. Then came the volte face from Boris when he capitulated to the clearly incentivised “scientific advisors” and introduced the disasterous lockdown based on ficticious projections from Imperial College. As the disease started to wane, the death rates began to fall to very low levels. More people are being tested and the number of cases are increasing, although most have no symptoms and are still healthy. Meanwhile many other countries are getting on with their lives -Germany and Denmark opened their schools with no problems at all. All in all the picture is very muddied, and the public has become rightly suspicious about what they are being told. Many now believe the whole charade has been about two things – a political agenda to gauge the impact and response from the public, and secondly to create sufficient fear to “persuade” the public to take the very lucrative and possibly dangerous vaccines worth billions.

  2. Watch this amazing demonstration of the only safe vaccine:

    It’s the only syringe they’ll ever get near my arm !!!

    .

  3. What else would they expect? They invite people to become conspiracy theorists because they tried to pull off a fake event so large and ill-conceived that people were bound to conclude this has to be a conspiracy. A pandemic would appear then spread exponentially with a continuity we could all see and understand and maybe predict. This pandemic lacks continuity, sometimes going backwards, but what it lacks most of all is millions of dead.

  4. How do you know that the Covid scam…..is a scam?

    Think of the constant publicity in the media….it is unceasing!.

    So there are dire reports about the supposed virus in modern first world countries with health care.

    Logically you would expect things to be ten times worse in third world countries….surely?.

    NO!…There is hardly any coverage on the spread of the virus….nor reports of mass deaths.
    So….the virus is very much a scam….well despite that the media will continue to run scare stories.
    All the contradictions about the 9/11 attack which have been publicised on the internet have not made a dent in the “official story”…..

    Meantime FOUR THOUSAND illegal immigrants have crossed the channel in the last year……AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE TO STOP THEM OR REPATRIATE THE ILLEGALS…
    The public KNOW (despite the medias best efforts to cover it up) the Jew Soros has been financing the invasion.
    What the public DONT KNOW is that Johnson and Raab are part of the same Jewish elite which is knowingly flooding the West with third world illegal immigrants…..They do this BY INACTION….they pretend they have more important things going on to bother about this….
    Similarly BLAIR a Marrano Catholic….SECRETLY opened the door to millions of third world invaders….This fact CATEGORICALLY demonstrates that they have something to hide and want to keep the public in the dark ABOUT WHAT THEY ARE DOING COVERTLY…..
    SO THE JEW JOHNSON KNOWS EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING ON.
    “Theyve got back up”……if you attempt to do something about this deliberate circumventing of the law…..YOU WILL COME TO THE ATTENTION OF THE BRITISH SECRET POLICE MI5…..led by a jew of course.
    They…..will attempt to get damning information about you and pass it onto the regular police.

    Johnson is a grotesque caricature of a leader and has the potential to become dictatorial should disorder become the norm…..sort of a thug in a suit.
    Some absolute idiots in the comments section of some newspapers have suggested asking the Queen to step in to protect Britains borders.
    The Windsors are PART OF THE PROBLEM which is why Halfwit Harry ended up multiculturalising the family and it was not stopped…..
    Other idiots have compared the Spanish royalty with Britain….the ex king has just done a bunk following the exposure of corruption….the idiots have said “that at least it wouldn’t happen here (meaning Britain)”
    The only reason it “is not happening here” is because the media wouldn’t even report it IF it was happening!!
    Assange reported that the Queen has secret bank accounts in the Caribbean……GUESS WHERE HE IS CURRENTLY RESIDING……Britains modern version of the Tower…..BELMARSH….and like the good old days it is possible he WILL DIE IN PRISON……and the only thing he did was jump bail!……
    The SCUM at The Guardian actually betrayed Assange…..the true measure of their commitment to freedom of speech…..FAKE FAKE FAKE.

    At the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic, the federal government poured $10 billion into “Operation Warp Speed,” which aims to deliver 300 million doses of a vaccine to Americans by January 2021.

    Since then, the government has provided funding to several different companies to develop vaccines, including $1.6 billion to Novavax, $1.95 billion to Pfizer, $1 billion to Johnson & Johnson, and $1.2 billion to AstraZenca.

    President Trump said Thursday he is “optimistic” that a vaccine will be approved for distribution before Election Day on Nov. 3, according to the Associated Press.

    “We’ll develop a vaccine. We’re going to have it very soon and we’re ready to distribute it. We’ve got the military ready, logistics it’s called. And we’ll end this pandemic and we will rebuild the greatest economy in the history of the world,” he said Saturday from his golf club in Bedminster, N.J.

    Dr. Fauci said Friday a vaccine may only be 50% effective

    Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious disease expert, warned Friday during a conversation at the Brown University School of Public Health that a vaccine isn’t a cure-all.

    “We don’t know yet what the efficacy might be. We don’t know if it will be 50% or 60%. I’d like it to be 75% or more,” Fauci said Friday. “But the chances of it being 98% effective is not great, which means you must never abandon the public health approach.”

  7. Over 50 years ago when the Flu injection first hit the market I worked for a large company. All employees were asked to have the Flu shot, so I complied and that year I got the Flu. Next year, again I had the shot and again I got the Flu and yet again in the third year the same. After that I made my mind up never to have another Flu shot and guess what, I have never had the Flu since. The WHO is controlled, trust their opinions and recommendations at your peril!
    And as for the Covid19 it doesn’t exist, it’s a hoax, although TPTB have excelled themselves this time this is way bigger than the holohoax or climate change!
