A Reuters/Ipsos poll published Thursday has revealed that a quarter of Americans are not interested in taking a coronavirus vaccine.

The poll founds that 14% were not interested at all, and 10% were not very interested in the vaccine.

However, while that 24% dismissed the idea, two thirds, 66%, said they are either “very” or “somewhat” interested in taking a vaccine when it is produced.

Dr. William Schaffner, an infectious disease expert at Vanderbilt University Medical Center in Nashville, said “It’s a little lower than I thought it would be with all the attention to COVID-19,” adding “I would have expected somewhere around 75 percent.”

The Reuters report notes that health experts believe “at least 70% of Americans would need to be immune through a vaccine or prior infection to achieve what is known as “herd immunity,” when enough people are resistant to an infectious disease to prevent its spread.”

Peter Hotez, dean of the National School of Tropical Medicine at Baylor College of Medicine noted that “It’s not surprising a significant percentage of Americans are not going to take the vaccine because of the terrible messaging we’ve had, the absence of a communication plan around the vaccine and this very aggressive anti-vaccine movement.”

The poll also found that 36% of respondents would be less willing to take a vaccine if President Trump said it was safe, with just 14% said they would be interested.

A week ago, Trump announced “Operation Warp Speed,” to fast-track the development and distribution of a coronavirus vaccine by January 2021, tapping experts and resources in science, medicine, the military, and the private sector.

Trump has said that the military will be deployed to distribute the vaccine, but has suggested that it will remain voluntary, noting that it will be for those “who want to get it,” and “Not everyone is going to want to get it.”

UK Councils Bring Back ‘COVID Marshals’ to Report People For Not Social Distancing

They have no enforcement power, but will call the cops.

UK council authorities are putting more ‘COVID marshals’ onto the streets to report people to the police for not properly social distancing.

After the government lifted some lockdown restrictions on Monday, bars and restaurants were allowed to open outside.

This prompted the media to once again hysterically point to footage of people daring to enjoy themselves in order to whip up another contrived panic over a ‘4th wave’ of the virus returning despite Britain having one of the lowest case rates in the world amongst major countries.

Local government immediately responded by vowing to put more state spies on the streets.

“Councils across England have boosted the number of Covid-19 marshals patrolling city centres after scenes of overcrowding since outdoor drinking and dining resumed on Monday,” reports the Times.

The marshals have no enforcement power, so their role almost entirely depends on lecturing people about their behavior and then snitching on them to police if they fail to comply.

As we previously highlighted, when the second lockdown was implemented in the UK last autumn, COVID marshals were dispatched to ensure pubs and clubs were closed.

Photographs from the patrols showed marshals peering into windows and letterboxes to ensure gatherings or private parties were not taking place.

Images from London on Monday also showed masked security guards with attack dogs waiting to deal with any trouble caused by overcrowding as shops re-opened.

This is all apparently part of the process of regaining our freedom!

Tucker Carlson Responds To Fauci Labelling His Basic Questions ‘Crazy Conspiracy Theory’

“Why do people who have been previously infected and show high levels of antibodies have to live under the restrictions that the vaccines were supposed to eliminate?”

Tucker Carlson responded to Anthony Fauci’s accusation that it is “a typical crazy conspiracy theory” to question why restrictions must remain in place even with a COVID vaccine by asking “If this stuff works, why can’t you live like it works?

Fauci has refused to appear on Carlson’s show, but instead appears daily on CNN, where Wednesday he said “I don’t have any idea of what [Carlson] is talking about,” and called the Fox host a ‘conspiracy theorist’ for questioning why masks and distancing still need to be in place if the vaccine works.

Carlson responded by repeating the same “very straightforward” question, “why do people who have been previously infected and show high levels of antibodies have to live under the restrictions that the vaccines were supposed to eliminate?”

“Why, for example, does Tony Fauci say you have to wear a mask after you get the vaccine?” Carlson continued, adding “If we are following the science, and we sincerely hope to, we’re wondering, is Fauci telling Americans who have been vaccinated or who have been recovered from the coronavirus itself, that they aren’t protected against future infections?”

“Is that why he is saying they can’t eat in restaurants or go to bars? These are not trick questions. They are the most basic of all questions. We would love to have Dr. Fauci on this show to explain them.,” Carlson continued.

“This, again, is not a trick question, we are not playing word games here, what is the answer?” Carlson pleaded, adding “If the coronavirus vaccine prevents you from catching the coronavirus, why are you wearing a mask? Why can’t you eat in a restaurant? And if it doesn’t prevent you from catching the coronavirus, why are we taking it in the first place? Both can’t be true.”

MSNBC Analyst Mocked For Saying Vaccine Felt Like a “Wave of Euphoria”

It’s not heroin, mate.

An MSNBC analyst was mocked on Twitter after he bizarrely commented that taking the COVID-19 vaccine felt like a “wave of euphoria.”

Matthew Miller became the latest public figure to aggressively signal his virtue with the apparent belief that having a jab is some kind of Mother Theresa-level act of public service.

“Did not quite anticipate the wave of euphoria and emotion that comes with that first shot. Go get your vaccine, folks. Best feeling you’ll have had in a year,” tweeted Miller.

Given that his description of taking the vaccine was more suited to taking a large dose of heroin, Miller faced almost immediate ridicule.

Journalists and news pundits have developed a weird fetish for posting vaccine selfies, appearing to believe that having someone inject a needle in your arm is a momentous act of moral bravery.

Last week, CNN’s Brian Stelter also faced mockery for calling out Fox News hosts for not sharing their own vaccine selfies.

“It’s really important to see all these TV anchors, personalities, showing themselves getting the shot. We’ve seen a lot of vaccine selfies from lots of folks at lots of different networks, it’s been really inspiring to see,” Stelter said.

“So, I say all of that to make the following point,” Stelter added. “Where are the biggest stars on Fox getting vaccinated?”

Maybe most of them are getting vaccinated but don’t broadcast the fact because getting vaccinated isn’t an achievement.
