Why does this political cartoonist say it’s only Republicans against vaccines?

CBS News released a poll conducted between March 10 and 13 which found 33 percent of Republicans say they won’t get the vaccine when it becomes available to them, while just 10 percent of Democrats said the same. In that survey, 47 percent of Republicans said they’ve already received the vaccine or plan to do so, compared to 71 percent of Democrats.

Those findings follow a recent poll from NPR/PBS NewsHour/Marist which found that 47 percent of people who supported former President Donald Trump in the 2020 election say they won’t choose to be vaccinated (versus 10 percent of Biden supporters), as well as a Monmouth University poll released earlier in March that found 59 percent of Republicans either wanted to wait and “see how it goes” before getting vaccinated, or said they were likely to never get one. By contrast, 23 percent of Democrats felt the same way.

Similarly, Pew found 83 percent of Democrats have been vaccinated, or plan to be, compared to 56 percent of Republicans.

The Kaiser Family Foundation and Washington Post recently discovered that partisan vaccine hesitancy extends to the medical profession. A survey they conducted from February 11 to March 7 found 40 percent of Republican health care workers — including doctors, nurses, and staff — feel available vaccines may not be safe and effective. That view was held by 28 percent of Democrat health care workers.

I think this explains the difference between parties.

Republican objectors may not believe the vaccine is needed where the Democrat may be feeling there has not been not enough research done before releasing the vaccine. The researchers should be asking this points of difference to really identify why people are saying what they are saying. We seem to be stuck simple questions like yes or now rather than no but why no, give them choices to explain their no.

Now that would be reveling.

Pollsters need to release the questions asked and the context.

For instance, if you did a poll in Australia, you will find that at the moment no one wants to take the Astra Zeneca vaccine. Forcing the Government to back pedal and halt the vaccination program for now.

The idea is to now get Pfizer and Johnstone & Johnstone vaccines.

But if you ask people whether they will be vaccinated then probably over 90% will in both the US and Australia.

Plus the US has already vaccinated over 200 million people. There are only 130 odd million who have not received their first shot or about 40% and they are still vaccination millions each day.

Because the cartoonist is a brainless drone of the fake news media.

I'm pretty annoyed at headlines like this... :?

"Pfizer sees robust COVID-19 vaccine demand for years, $26 bln in 2021 sales"

Comparisons of the various vaccines efficacy show that both Pfizer and AstraZeneca are highly effective. Negative reactions very rare and not that different.

AstraZeneca have been giving the Oxford vaccine away at cost price - $4, compared to Pfizer $20. Yet, there's been a relentless campaign, mainly by the likes of Macron and Merkel to sow misleading doubts about the AZ which has resulted in a lot of people rejecting it. Look at what's happened here.

Welcome to the marvelous EU.

...Cuba, isolated as it is, will be studied for their success with this virus; 40-60 times less deaths.



...large pharmaceutical companies do not have a monopoly on making the drugs we need.

Covid surges in the world’s most vaccinated nation
https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/cov ... ed-nation/

SEYCHELLES, an archipelago nation in the Indian Ocean with a population of about 98,000, is locking down again – even though it has fully vaccinated more than 60 per cent of its adult population with two vaccine doses, more than any other country in the world.


...i feel it is important to note this issue.

What with Cyprus, and many advanced countries (far larger) reaching the same stage soon, it is troubling to me.
