62% of Americans will refuse jab to due to safety concerns

A new scientific poll has found that the vast majority of Americans have no intention of rolling up their sleeves for the H1N1 vaccine because they do not trust government assurances that the shot is safe.

In the week that the first H1N1 vaccines have become available, 62% of respondents to ABC News/Washington Post survey said they will probably not get vaccinated, while 30% said they are not confident in the shot’s safety.

The poll shows that the vast majority of Americans would rather risk sickness than trust their government’s advice of necessity, indicating that the $16 million federal propaganda effort is failing.

In addition, the survey reveals that around four parents out of ten say they have no intention of allowing their children to receive the vaccine.

Over half of respondents in that group said that the primary reason they would not allow their kids to be vaccinated was because of the possibility of side effects and suspicions that the shot has not been adequately tested.

The rest cited the belief that H1N1 was not serious enough to warrant vaccination or that getting the shot was not “worth the trouble”.

The results come despite the fact that concerns over getting the flu have also increased significantly from 39% to 52%. More people are worried over H1N1 than they were over bird flu and SARS in 2006 and 2003 respectively, according to the poll.

“These results suggest that encouraging vaccinations depends not merely on warning people about getting the flu but as much on persuading doubters that the vaccine is safe.” The ABC report states.

The numbers in the ABC/Washington Post poll dovetail almost exactly with those in recent AP, Consumer Reports and Harvard University surveys.

Elsewhere there have been mixed reports on the uptake of the vaccine. Some clinics have reported thousands lining up on the streets to get the vaccine, while others have reported very low turnouts.

(Picture – reportedly 1700 people queued up to be vaccinated against swine flu in Rockville, Maryland. Many had to be turned away.)

Chicago has taken the step of making the vaccine free for pregnant women; health-care workers; caregivers of children younger than 6 months; children and adults under 24, and adults who have underlying medical conditions.
