What was the question?
How comfortable would you feel getting a Covid-19 vaccine if it had received an emergency use order before the election but before it has been fully tested?
- Very Uncomfortable (77%, 154 Votes)
- Somewhat Uncomfortable (10%, 19 Votes)
- Very Comfortable (7%, 13 Votes)
- Somewhat Comfortable (6%, 13 Votes)
Bedford feels even more uncomfortable than the country as a whole.
Nationally 60% said they would be uncomfortable taking the vaccine before the election if it has not been fully tested. Trust in the safety of the vaccine is a huge issue for the pharmaceutical industry, so much so, that the chief executives of nine drug companies publicly pledged to “make the safety and well-being of vaccinated individuals the top priority in the development of the first COVID-19 vaccines.”
They also pledged not to seek approval from the FDA until safety and efficacy have been established in their phase 3 trials.
