Nearly half say it’s ‘likely’ coronavirus vaccines have caused ‘significant number of unexplained deaths’

Nearly half of Americans think it’s at least somewhat likely that coronavirus vaccines have caused a ‘significant number of unexplained deaths’, and more than a quarter said they know someone whose death may have been caused by side effects of vaccines, a Rasmussen Reports investigation released Monday found.

The survey asked respondents, “How likely are side effects of COVID-19 vaccines to have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths?”

Overall, 49% said it was at least “somewhat” likely, but of those, 28% said it was “very” likely. Another 20% said it was ‘not very’ likely and 17% said ‘not at all’ likely. Fourteen percent remain uncertain.

What’s more, it appears to be a bipartisan issue, as most Democrats (51%) and Republicans (56%) think it’s at least somewhat likely. Independents remain more skeptical as 42% believe it is at least somewhat likely that side effects from coronavirus vaccines have caused unexplained deaths, compared to 38% who find it not likely.

The survey then asked respondents if they “personally know anyone whose death you think may have been caused by side effects of COVID-19 vaccines.”

More than a quarter, 28%, said “yes”, and 10% remain unsure. Sixty-one percent said no.

The numbers remain relatively consistent across the board, as 33% of Democrats, 26% of Republicans and 26% of Independents say they know someone who they believe died from side effects of vaccines.

Additionally, 48% said there were ‘legitimate reasons to worry’ about vaccine safety, compared to 37% who think those expressing concerns are just ‘spreading conspiracy theories’. Fifteen percent remain uncertain.

Seventy-one percent of those surveyed identified themselves as vaccinated, but more than a quarter, 26%, said they were not. This corresponds relatively to that of November The Economist/YouGov survey, which found 23% identify as unvaccinated.

The survey was carried out December 28-30, 2022, among 1,000 US adults and has a margin of error of +/- 3%. In particular, the survey rely on scientific evidence that the deaths were linked to the vaccine.

He comes as concerns continue to be raised about the safety of vaccines – especially mRNA vaccines. That prompted action from Florida in October, which advised against mRNA shots for men under 40. Twitter, before Musk’s takeover, temporarily censored Florida surgeon general Joseph Ladapo for this advice.

Ladapo went on to highlight some of the associated risks between coronavirus vaccines and mRNA, pointing to another study “consistent with Florida’s analysis”, showing a link between the jab and myocarditis in early December.

Last month, Governor Ron DeSantis (right) announced his decision to ask the Florida Supreme Court to appoint a statewide grand jury. charged by investigating “all wrongdoing in Florida regarding COVID-19 vaccines”.

Meanwhile, First Lady Jill Biden kicked off the new year by encouraging Americans to “go get that COVID vaccine.”
