A survey conducted by researchers at the Texas A&M School of Public Health asked 625 primary care physicians about their thoughts regarding the following statements:
- The COVID vaccines are safe.
- The COVID vaccines are effective.
- The COVID vaccines are important.
Here is a summary of their responses.
- 10.1% did not agree that the vaccines were safe.
- 9.3% did not agree that the vaccines were effective.
- 8.3% did not agree that the vaccines were important.
- 5.2% remained unvaccinated at the end of the survey in May 2021.
Lead author Timothy Callaghan said they were surprised to find that 1 in 10 surveyed physicians did not believe that the vaccines were safe or effective. According to Callaghan, “…only 1 in 20 of those surveyed remained unvaccinated. This suggests some vaccine-hesitant doctors complied because of employer regulations, and others voluntarily got vaccinated at some point but subsequently changed their minds because of their personal experience or the experience of their patients”.
The authors continue to take the position that the vaccines were safe, effective, and important and they think that “10% of doctors [were] getting it wrong”. They also say that the doctors’ views regarding the vaccine were related to their political views, with more conservative people tending to be vaccine-hesitant.
The article on this was written by Dr. Madhava Setty and was published by The Defender last April 19, 2022. The full research was published by the Vaccine journal and is accessible at Science Direct [This is the same journal that published and retracted an article showing the deadly impact of COVID vaccination, read COVID vaccines kill two people for every three lives it saves and Scientists quit board to pressure journal into retracting study showing COVID vaccines can kill].
Editor’s Note: This is not the first time that doctors have expressed vaccine hesitancy [Consider the following articles: 30% of Docs Say They Don’t Want Own Kids 5-11 to Get COVID Vaccine, Head of German Vaccination Commission Says He Won’t Vaccinate His Child, Group of Senior Doctors and Scientists Call on JCVI to Pause Roll out of COVID Vaccines to Children 5 to 11 years, Thousands of Physicians and Scientists Reach Consensus: Natural Immunity Works, Children Do Not Need COVID Vaccination, No Need for Vaccines: Children’s Immune Systems Primed and Ready for SARS-CoV-2, Oxford University Infectious Disease Experts Say NO to COVID Vaccines for Children, mRNA Inventor: Toxic Spike Proteins from COVID Jabs Often Cause Permanent Damage in Kids].
Were all these doctors who were campaigning against the vaccination of young children, conservatives? Or were they well-credentialled people who had the expertise to speak about childhood vaccinations and the dangers it poses?
We echo the questions raised by Dr. Setty in his article: Are the skeptical physicians misinformed? Or are they among the minority who recognize the implications of this crucial rebranding of the term “vaccine”? [Several experts have already expressed, these COVID shots are not vaccines, see It’s All About Language: Covid Jab is Gene Therapy, Not a Vaccine, Study finds Pfizer jab goes into liver cells and is converted into DNA, confirms mRNA jab is gene therapy, Dr. David Martin: Experimental mRNA “vaccines” are not vaccines, they are a medical device].
