A Rasmussen Reports survey of 1,000 American Adults was conducted on December 28-30, 2022. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95 percent level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted by Pulse Opinion Research, LLC, and is considered valid and representative of American sentiment.
Consistent with a prior Zogby survey, Rasmussen found seventy-one percent (71 percent) say they have received a COVID-19 vaccination, while 26 percent have not. Concerns about vaccine safety are much higher among the unvaccinated. However, the vaccinated appear to be waking up to the harms of the shots.
Among the vaccinated, many of whom pushed the COVID-19 shots on family members or in the workplace, now 38 percent consider unexplained deaths from the vaccine at least somewhat likely. Whereas among those who wisely declined the vaccines, 77 percent of adults believe it’s at least somewhat likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths.
While 45 percent of the unvaccinated think someone they know personally might have died from vaccine side effects, only 22 percent of vaccinated adults know of a vaccine death making the population average a stunning 28 percent!
The results are consistent with a Michigan State University survey conducted by Dr. Mark Skidmore a year ago which found 22 percent of respondents knew of someone with a severe health problem after COVID-19 vaccination.
