Too Many People Know a Guy

Yesterday at work when I was waiting at the time clock I was reading the poster on the wall about the COVID vaccine being “safe and effective”.

These poster have been there for quite a long time and are behind the times and the fact, but what ‘s really fascinating is pols are showing that despite an almost complete blackout of the side effects and dangers of the COVID vaccine reality continues to trump the official narrative:

How did they answer? 71% of those surveyed were vaccinated, comparable to the national average. Virtually half of respondents don’t believe the “disinformation” mantra propagated by “fact checkers”, mainstream media, and the government. “49% of American adults believe it is likely that side effects of COVID-19 vaccines have caused a significant number of unexplained deaths, including 28% who think it’s very likely.”

Furthermore, “28% of adults say they personally know someone whose death they think may have been caused by side effects of COVID-19 vaccines.” And “48% of Americans believe there are legitimate reasons to be concerned about the safety of COVID-19 vaccines.”

Think about that for a second if almost 1-2 people people out of a pool that’s 71% vaccinated thinks there are legit reasons to be concerning and more than 1-4 know somebody whose death they think may have be caused by side effect of COVID, that’s huge particularly when there are so many incentives both social and physical for people to believe otherwise.

Furthermore there was not a question concerning illnesses. The number of anecdotes concerning people I know and people who my wife knows who have been having “interesting” health issues who are vaccinated is significant and I suspect if I know plenty of people with problems plenty of other people likely know the same.

Of course all of this is supposition but I’ll leave you with a graphic from Instapundit that I think spikes the ball concerning the amount people trust both the government and the medical profession these days:

Even without this the sheer number of people who know someone with complications is a ticking time bomb. The only question is when will this blow up the narrative to the point where it will be more advantageous to pols to pivot.

When it does a lot of those who enforced vax mandates that were not ordered by the government will be shaking in their boots.
