The Biggest COVID-19 Vaccine Skeptics?
Frontline Health Care Workers

Original Article

Posted By: earlybird, 3/13/2021 3:29:01 PM

What do frontline health care workers and first responders know about COVID-19 vaccines that politicians and their public health advisers don’t? According to a January analysis by Gallup, 51 percent of health care workers and first responders polled in December were unconvinced of the merits of getting vaccinated, even if the vaccine “was free, available, FDA approved and 90% effective.” Gallup found these results especially concerning since those at highest risk of exposure to COVID-19—the professionals required to meet America’s health, safety, and critical economic needs whom the National Academies of Engineering, Science and Medicine define as “Tier 1A workers”—were the likeliest to refuse vaccination (34 percent).

FTA, in which Solomon reports data from not just the United States, but from countries across the world: Yet the CDC doesn’t explain why continued focused communication and outreach—i.e., more of the same—would overcome worker hesitancy, when workers don’t fully trust the data, or those who deliver the data. To overcome that trust barrier and win over the frontline workers—people who have every incentive to protect themselves—the media would need to lift the censorship, industry would need to subject its studies to independent scrutiny, and all would need to engage in reasoned debate rather than “trust-us” assurances.

Let's see what happens with the newborn in 9 months. If they come out with an extra toe and finger or two or a third eye in the middle of their forehead or two faces, then there'll be about 100 million people who might regret their decision. I've had both my shots. If anyone asks I'll kindly ask them to prove me wrong. Gotta get around those HIPAA laws first. If those laws no longer apply, then let's get an online listing of all the women who've had abortions since the 1970's.

I'm a front line worker, who fits no high risk category. I got the vaccine. I believe I would survive the virus if I got the virus. I got it so that the people I come into contact with through my job feel safe coming in. One falsehood that I kept hearing on conservative leaning websites is that the vaccine is new and experimental. They have been studying mRna vaccines for 20 years. I know more people who have died from covid than I know who have died from the vaccine (I don't know anyone who has died from the vaccine). Do I have faith that the vaccine is a panacea? Nope. But stop the fear mongering both pro and con.

Why take a vaccine from a company that refuses to accept liability, and for a disease that is only dangerous for a few percent of the population, when even Merck suggests that the best immunity would come from having gotten the disease and and gotten over it, which would occur in 99.75% of cases, or more? Taking it so your patients will feel comfortable coming in to the clinic -- that at base it an economic decision. And mRNA vaccines have been studied for 20 years, perhaps, but only came to market when the government is willing to cover Pharma asses. I'm staying in the control group as long as I have control.

Apparently, the politicians DO know something about the vaccines, and it ain't good. I just saw online at Infowars various pictures of heads of state around the world supposedly getting the vaccine with empty syringes. They were pretending to get the vaccine. We are all supposed to get it to "protect" us, but they aren't getting it.

I have found that people don't have to be encouraged, or talked into a good thing. Avoid compulsion. Let the cautious be cautious, the brave be brave, and things will follow naturally. If it really is a good thing, then the cautious will abandon caution. If not, they will have been proven to be right to be cautious.

We went back and forth, but my husband and I, both in our late 60's, got the Pfizer vaccine and had no problems. If we had dependent children, we probably would not vaccinate them. Our DIL, who has been extremely paranoid about the virus, insisted that our teenage grandchildren get the vaccine. Not too happy about that. We hope that there will be no long term effects for them.

There are existing good therapeutics for Covid-19 which the corrupt leftist msm have ridiculed, disparaged and refused to report on. There are NO existing therapeutics to rid a human body of mRNA or the spike protein once injected and human cells are infected that I know of. This is a classic example of the Democrat mantra of never letting a crisis go to waste! Instead of creating a traditional vaccine based on prior vaccine experience big pharma decided this was the right opportunity to experiment with mRNA and the spike protein! I pray to God these Covid-19 vaccines don’t create severe complications in the future! God help us all! Hosanna!

It is simple economics. People inherently calculate the benefit/cost ratio and make a decision. Some will decide the vaccine is a benefit and get it, and some will decide that the 99.8% survival rate means they don't need the vaccine. It surely does not help when bureaucrats - not known for their honesty - use propaganda in an attempt to persuade. I find it infuriating when "experts" - who are usually wrong and frequently change their recommendations - suggest that I am too dumb to decide for myself.

I'm willing to indulge skepticism about the vaccine, although I decided to take the Pfizer, and am glad to report I had almost no reaction, even after the second shot (and that was a month ago.) I am old enough to be considered a member of the cohort most vulnerable to COVID -- that motivated my decision That said, I don't think rightwing skeptics should slobber over the vaunted opinions of "front-line" workers like RNs in the same deplorable fashion the left did months back. Hate to tell everybody -- RNs aren't any smarter that Dr. Fauci.

According to Fox News, not only are Republicans very confident that they’ll stop the Democrats from accomplishing expanding the Supreme Court from nine seats to 13, but that the move will be unpopular enough to hand both the House and the Senate to them during the midterm elections.

Maricopa County officials refused to allow the audit to take place in the tabulations center where the ballots are currently stored {Go Deep}.

It was pretty clear from the beginning that the Zhou Baiden regime's decision to use the hapless Ukraine to push Putin around and bend him to the Zhou regime's will was going to end badly. That seems official now. After all the belligerent rhetoric emanating from the Deep State someone--probably Putin--seems to have convinced the regime that they were painting themselves into a corner. Given that all the escalation was a result of mouthing off on the part of the Zhou regime directed at Russia, this is clearly a humiliating climb down.

So why is the Biden administration pushing the narrative that white Trump supporters are refusing to take the vaccine when the problem is minority Biden supporters? Well, that question self-answered. The Washington Times reported, "White House press secretary Jen Psaki said the Biden administration is currently engaged with NASCAR and Country Music TV, among multiple other venues, in an effort to reach White conservatives who may be hesitant to get vaccinated against COVID-19."
