Nearly a quarter of Americans believe someone they know died from Covid-19 vaccine side effects, and even more say they might be willing to become plaintiffs in a class-action lawsuit against vaccine makers.
That's according to the latest Rasmussen Reports.
The national survey found that 24% of American Adults say they know someone personally who died from side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine.
Sixty-nine percent (69%) don’t know anyone who died from being vaccinated against the virus.
Forty-two percent (42%) say that, if there was a major class-action lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies for vaccine side effects, they would be likely to join the lawsuit, including 24% who say it’s "very likely" they’d join such a lawsuit.
Forty-seven percent (47%) aren’t likely to join a class-action lawsuit against vaccine makers, including 25% who say it’s "not at all likely."
Another 11% are not sure.
Nearly half (47%) say they know someone personally who died from the Covid-19 virus, while 49% don’t know anyone who died from the virus, which became a pandemic in the United States in 2020.
Among those who say someone they know died from the Covd-19 virus, 41% also say they know someone who died from side effects of the Covid-19 vaccine.
By contrast, among those who say they don’t know anyone who died from the virus, only nine percent (9%) say they know someone who died from Covid-19 vaccine side effects.
