America’s political and media establishment is losing the information war when it comes to experimental COVID-19 vaccines despite banning the opposition and putting billions of dollars into propaganda.
A Yahoo News article released Wednesday, titled, “Nation Faces ‘Hand-to-Hand Combat’ to Get Reluctant Americans Vaccinated,” dives into low vaccination rates in conservative areas and minority communities.
The report complains that while more than half the nation’s adults have gotten the first dose of the COVID vaccine, a large portion of those individuals are not returning for their second shot.
“If you think of this as a war, we’re about to enter the hand-to-hand combat phase of the war,” said Michael Carney, the senior vice president for emerging issues at the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation.
The first state the Yahoo article focused on is Alabama, where less than 40% of adults have had their first COVID vaccine and just 19% of the total population has been fully vaccinated with both doses.
Alabama State Health Officer Dr. Scott Harris told Yahoo the issue was predominantly found with “rural white residents who demonstrate high rates of vaccine hesitancy” and are “mistrustful of politicians and the news media.”
To combat this, Dr. Harris is asking other doctors to send videos to their patients promoting the experimental gene therapy “vaccines.”
The establishment is worried that “In Mississippi, which opened vaccinations to all adults a month ago, 21% of the population is fully inoculated. In Alabama, the figure is just 19%. In Georgia, home of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, just 20% of the population is fully vaccinated.”
Why are so many people who believed in the mRNA vaccines enough to get the initial dose not returning to complete the process?
Shirley Bloomfield, a chief executive working with the White House to push employees of small, rural telecommunications companies to get the vaccine, said as many as 15% of people in small towns were not showing up for their second shot.
Bloomfield claims social media posts about negative side effects are causing people to fear the booster shot.
Social media accounts sharing testimonials are likely playing a role, but many of the individuals ditching the second shot personally suffered adverse reactions from the first one.
Dr. Harris of Alabama admitted the state anticipated vaccine hesitancy among African Americans, but not from rural whites.
Biden Press Secretary Jen Psaki recently touched on rural white vaccine hesitancy by revealing the administration is putting $3 billion into running PSAs on ‘The Deadliest Catch,’ during Nascar events and on Country Music TV.
Imagine if the Trump administration doled out tax dollars to BET and KFC to push vaccines in an ultimate example of pandering.
How will mainstream media and politicians twist the narrative after states with less than 20% of people fully vaccinated don’t see a surge in coronavirus cases?
