Top 11 Reasons for COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy – First: Mistrust of Government


Manwon Lender
 Share

Recommended Posts

People’s trust in the government’s approval of a safe and effective vaccine against COVID-19 is the biggest driver of vaccine uptake, an Australian study has found. But on the flip side there is another driver that makes people shy away from vaccination and that is a general mistrust of their Government. The next two most common drivers of vaccine hesitancy were found to be “free-riding,” where individuals believe they can benefit from others taking up the vaccine without being immunized themselves, and conspiracy beliefs about vaccination, capturing the attitudes of “anti-vaxxers.”

The study, conducted by researchers from the Centre for Business Intelligence & Data Analytics at the University of Technology Sydney (UTS), sampled more than 4300 respondents in Australia, New Zealand, the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom, and found 11 factors were enablers or barriers to COVID-19 vaccination.

I would agree that mistrust is #1.  I didn't want to get the vaccine until I found reliable reviews of which is the best one to get.  I finally had to get it to go to Maui for my daughters wedding.   No where would anyone say anything except "The best one is the one you can get".   That is BS.   I could get all 3 but wanted info to point me in the right direction.   Nothing.   It's like it was taboo to report findings.  

Now it's become politicized.

BLM is not supporting vaccine mandates because they claim it is a way to keep black people out of places.   Ha ha.   What a bunch of idiots.  IF black people do not want to get the vaccine, it is their choice, but they need to follow the rules a business puts in place.

You mean the government who's officials said the vaccine could not be trusted and publicly vowed they would not take it when Trump was in office, who now demand everyone take it?

The government whose officials committed premediated mass murder of the elderly across multiple States using covid then shut down any investigation into it?  

The government who is actively allowing in and intentionally dispersing 10's of 1000's of illegal aliens from our southern border, all over the US and has flown 10's of 1000's more from overseas most all without testing or being vaccinated while demanding that you do?

The same government whose officials and elites are constantly being seen having dinner parties, large events and massive birthday bashes without masks, proof of taking a vaccine or social distancing while demanding you do as if they know there is no real threat and these measures are a joke?

The same government whose lead covid expert Dr Fauci was a leader is funding the virus research at Wuhan?

The same expert that refuses to acknowledge natural immunity or disclose when we will reach heard immunity? 

The same government whose officials are in the hip pocket of big pharma who has made billions from vaccines and stand to make billions more from mandated boosters?

What is not to trust?

The same governments who use behavioural scientists to manipulate the messages and coerce people to take the jab. It must be an awful virus if you need to be manipulated into taking into taking jab for a virus so deadly that the un-jabbed are still alive.

Remember, these are the same untrustworthy Govts who also say smoking is bad for you, you should exercise more, eat more healthily, and that you should never, ever, drive at 100mph through town after drinking a bottle of vodka.

On the other hand ..... you should never do anything simply because the Govt tells you too.

In all the above cases, there is sound medical and other scientific evidence to support what the Govt says.  As there is with the covid vaccine.

While not every minutia of a government is bad, I'm not against government in general as I get that some form is certainly required. That said, I didn't intend to mean that was my number one reason to not get the Vax. There's certainly a rebellious aspect to it at this point but from the onset my number one reason was that I simply didn't want to. It was more of a sit back and see what happens to everyone else for a while before I did, if ever. 

I can't say I seen today's tone coming. I was fairly confident Trump would win but even with a potential and then actual loss I didn't see this kind of pressure coming. At least I don't recall thinking that. Republicans for sure would never strong-arm the nation like this and democrats would've rather jumped into a pit of used needles before they took Trumps vaccine. I assumed it would be encouraged rather than cohersed and damn near forced for some.

How can anyone do that, it's theoretically impossible to change someone's opinion. For me it does matter if your vaccinated or not, it's your choice and you must live with consequences good or bad?

I got the vaccine because I trust the decades of research into mRNA applications, but I’ve lost all confidence in the politicians that promote masking and distancing while ignoring their own warnings. 
I worry that most government officials appear to have taken to heart Rahm Emanuel’s words:

“You never let a serious crisis go to waste. And what I mean by that it's an opportunity to do things you think you could not do before.”

Sorry, can you remind me which of those admonitions flip-flopped back and forth for over a year before they finally settled on one opinion?  If that seems like nit-picking to you then I can't help you but when it comes to something like a brand new vaccine that operates in a totally different way AND their advice, then DEMANDS on masks... I think rational people have every right to come to their own conclusions.  Add to that, these liars and "supremacists" ^ like the pig above and those who are all chuffed about being smarter than the idiots who are dying, and they shouldn't be surprised when people tell them to pound sound...  just sayin'...

I agree that ration people have every right to come to their own conclusions, but there is a bright side to those who choose not to get vaccinated. I just bought some stock in the following US Companies because business is booming?

1. You can still get sick from the virus if you get the vaccine.  Probably not as sick.  

2.  You can still spread the virus if you get the vaccine.  So...you still need to wear a mask.

Okay, so why should we get the vaccine?

3. You get the vaccine to protect others.  

But wait...I can still spread the disease if I get the vaccine.

4.  That's why you wear a mask...to protect others.

So...all of this is about ME protecting others?

5. Yes.

So, I need to give up my rights to free choice to protect others?

6. Yes.

Isn't that called Socialism?

7. Yes.

8.  Become Socialist ...  it is the only way to stop Trump...I mean...the Pandemic...

9.  Long live the Pandemic...

I didn't get sick and neither did my wife when we were vaccinated, we didn't get the vaccine to protect others we got the vaccine to protect ourselves. I wear a mask to possibly protect others, and I fully understand the mask doesn't protect me. The mask only serves one purpose and that is to minimize the Airborne liquid droplet spread into the open air if an infected person coughs. Now this is only a concern indoors, because someone who coughs can cause spray from the cough to spread 8 feet or more without mask. Out doors, I don't wear a mask unless I am in crowded areas.

I personally don't care what you or anyone does, if it doesn't effect me for the most part. But, I will say if my wife and I were out and someone coughed near us where I could feel the spray on my exposed skin, that does effect me and if the person wasn't wearing a mask he would be wearing my fist, because that irresponsible behavior does effect me! Outside of that I could careless what you or anyone else chooses to do, it's your choice, your life, and you should have the choice to make it.

Alright yes that was pretty awful but this guy was low level and didn't really offer up any damning policy information. Just a shltty and probably not too uncommon attitude at the FDA offices. The PV video from Monday from the hospital was a lot more damning imo.

That's not what they are saying about the vaccine.  They are saying that it is the unvaccinated to blame for everything...that we need to get vaccinated for others...if we don't care that much about ourselves at least get vaccinated to help others.   

Never in my life have I ever been coughed on and felt water droplets on my skin.  

Thank you for ..
