A surprising new poll from Rasmussen Reports shows that 24 percent of Americans “believe someone they know died from COVID-19 vaccine side effects.” 69 percent say they don’t know anyone who was killed by the shot, and the remaining seven percent are unsure. This data was gathered via a telephone and online survey conducted in late October 2023 with a sample size of 1,110 American adults.

We have to wonder how many respondents know someone likely killed by the side-effects of the COVID shots but were in denial or afraid to admit it.

When asked, “If there was a major class-action lawsuit against pharmaceutical companies for vaccine side effects, how likely would you be to join the lawsuit?” 42 percent said they’d be “likely” or “very likely” to join a class-action suit. Presumably, that means at least 42 percent of people who took the shot experienced some kind of adverse side effects that were bad enough to cause damages worthy of financial compensation.

However, in this case, a class-action suit against pharmaceutical companies like Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson is almost impossible.

“Companies like Pfizer and Moderna have total immunity against lawsuits related to injuries resulting from taking the COVID vaccines,” says a video puff piece about the then-new COVID shots by CNBC from December 2020. “Meanwhile, employers are legally allowed to require employees to get immunized against the virus.”

“If you suffer severe side effects after getting the COVID vaccine, there’s basically no one to blame in the U.S. court of law,” said CNBC host MacKenzie Sigalos. “HHS secretary Alex Azar invoked the Public Readiness and Emergency Preparedness Act (PREP), which protects the makers of COVID products such as vaccines and treatments from legal action. This protection lasts until 2024.”

It’s also impossible to sue the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for giving the shots emergency authorization. The FDA is part of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), which is a cabinet-level department of the executive branch of the federal government. That means the FDA is covered by sovereign immunity; the federal government is immune from civil suits or criminal prosecution.

The United States government, in collaboration with corrupt and greedy pharmaceutical companies, has made it effectively impossible for average Americans to have any legal recourse if they were harmed – or if their family members were killed – by an experimental shot. The rushed vaccines were aggressively promoted and coerced by the federal government, many state and local governments, the corporate media, the whole healthcare industry, universities, and employers across the country.

Americans took the shots, believing they were safe and effective, and many were under threat of losing their jobs or getting kicked out of college. However, an NBC News poll published in September 2023 shows that 31 percent of respondents said getting the shot was not worth it. That number was 57 percent among Republicans, 19 percent of Independents, and only 5 percent of Democrats, showing that the COVID vaccines remain a political battleground three years after their debut.
