I've said it many times, most Americans are not comfortable with making independent decisions, especially potential life-and-death healthcare decisions posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. It is as if Americans must make a group decision, which gives rise to the term "sheeple" to describe modern-day Americans. It almost seems as if opposition to experimental vaccination is unamerican. If only the "sheeple" knew.
Decisions to vaccinate made along political lines
It appears Americans are making momentous decisions to undergo experimental vaccination, that will have a lasting positive or negative effect their lives, largely along political lines rather than cautious analysis with regard to personal safety and effectiveness.
Most of what many Americans hear or read about COVID-19 is pro-vaccine propaganda which slants virtually all of the information, leaving the lay public with a choice to pick the vaccine they would prefer rather than to deal with the question whether they should vaccinate at all, which is what informed consent is all about.
It may come as a surprise to learn that no vaccine is totally safe or effective, especially an experimental RNA or DNA vaccine that uses unproven technology.
At the risk of ruining a night's sleep and causing high anxiety, what will the many millions of Americans who have already been vaccinated think when they learn the mortality rate for vaccinated individuals is greater than the mortal risk from the virus?
