MY SURVEY OF "COVID VAX ACCEPTANCE" SURVEYS
Dear Cluesforum readers,
The other day I asked myself this thorny question : just HOW many people on this planet are truly
eager to take the upcoming COVID vaccine?
So I spent a few days performing a little "survey of surveys", so to speak. Of course, we all know that polls and surveys are dubious instruments for truth-seeking purposes. Nonetheless, we cannot dismiss opinion polls & surveys as being entirely irrelevant (even though they may show - as we shall see - gross contradictions between each other).
So let me start with just such a pair of (totally) contradictory polls - performed by two "mainstream" media outlets in the United Kingdom only a few days ago:
source: https://www.express.co.uk/news/uk/13623 ... straZeneca
source: https://www.royston-crow.co.uk/news/wou ... -1-6938118
So what will it be? Are 62% of the British population eager to take the upcoming Covid vaccine - or is it the (exact opposite) other way round?
You may now say, scoffingly: "So much for the credibility of surveys". Sure - you may have a perfectly valid point. However, I decided to spend some time looking at other similar surveys around the world (Spain, Italy, Holland, France and the USA). All of them basically asking this same, crucial question :
WILL YOU TAKE THE COVID VACCINE AS IT BECOMES AVAILABLE?
Well, here's what I found on Spain's largest newspaper, "El Paìs":
And here's an Italian poll (with over 5000 responders) launched by Myrta Merlino, a TV journalist who runs a hugely popular TV show in Italy:
And here are two Dutch polls (with over 10,000 responders) performed by two different mainstream news outlets in Holland (the red type is, of course, mine):
And here's from a French mainstream outlet which goes on to say: "This Thursday November 12, 2020, another survey conducted by Odoxa for Franceinfo and Le Figaro goes that way too. Even more indicative, the Odoxa study results shows that barely 14% of the surveyed are willing to get vaccinated "for sure". Furthermore, 60% of the French surveyed said they were against the obligation to get tested."

Last but not least, here's an extract from an article from the eminent Pew Research Center regarding the acceptance-rate to the Covid vaccine in the USA:
Then, for the USA, we also have this graphic :
All in all, folks (and this is good news to me) it looks like most
people have many doubts about the upcoming COVID vaccine.
So the question becomes: HOW EXACTLY will the Nutwork carry out their insane project of vaccinating the entire population of this planet?
