A survey has found that more than a quarter of Americans who are not vaccinated against the Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) believe the vaccines pose a greater threat to their health and wellbeing than the virus itself.
The survey was conducted jointly by research firm YouGov and mainstream media outlet Yahoo News. The survey was held between July 13 to 15 on 1,715 American adults. It has a margin of error of plus or minus 2.7 percentage points.
According to the results of the survey, 29 percent of unvaccinated Americans believe the experimental COVID-19 vaccines that were developed in under a year are more dangerous to a person’s health than the coronavirus itself.
Thirty-seven percent of the unvaccinated said the coronavirus was the greater threat to their health. The remaining 35 percent said they were unsure.
