A new Rasmussen Reports national phone and online survey shows 49 percent of American adults believe it is likely side effects from the COVID shots have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths. This includes 28 percent who said it is very likely.
Thirty-seven percent do not say a significant number of deaths have been caused by the shots’ side effects, which includes seventeen percent who said it is not likely at all.
Twenty-eight percent of adults said they personally know someone whose death may have been caused by side effects of the COVID shot. Sixty-one percent said they don’t and 10 percent said they aren’t sure.
Forty-eight percent said there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about the safety of COVID shots. Thirty-seven percent said people who worry about vaccine safety are spreading conspiracy theories.
The survey of 1,000 American adults was conducted Dec. 28-30.
Keep in mind 71 percent of those surveyed said they have received a COVID shot. Twenty-six percent said they had not.
Seventy-seven percent of adults unvaccinated believe it’s at least somewhat likely side effects of COVID shots have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths. Just 38 percent of those who have gotten the shot feel the same.
Interestingly, 33 percent of Democrats suspect someone they know might have died from the shot, whereas just 26 percent of Republicans and 26 percent of unaffiliated voters say the same.
