There’s a very important reason that financial incentives and media bullying aren’t going to be enough to convince some Americans to get the COVID-19 vaccine: Many people are legitimately afraid that the vaccine poses a higher risk than contracting the virus itself, particularly among healthy individuals.
Article by Cassie B. from Natural News.
A survey carried out by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that 53 percent of Americans who have not yet been vaccinated against COVID-19 believe that the shots pose greater risks to their health than contracting the disease. It’s a view that is especially strong among those who say they are not getting the vaccine; three fourths of those who responded that they will definitely not be getting jabbed are convinced the vaccine is more dangerous than the virus itself.
Interestingly, it’s not just those who are unvaccinated who are concerned about the vaccine’s risks; 7% of vaccinated Americans also think that the vaccine poses a greater danger than the virus. Additionally, 34% of those who say they are waiting and seeing before getting the vaccine also share this belief.
Most unvaccinated Americans believe the mainstream media is exaggerating COVID-19 risks
It is also noteworthy that 57% of unvaccinated Americans think the risks of COVID-19 have been exaggerated by the mainstream media. That percentage is even higher among those who are not getting vaccinated at 75%, while 43% of those who are waiting also believe it has been exaggerated.
Among the vaccinated adults polled, 62 percent said they would wear masks in public and 61 percent said they would avoid large gatherings, while 37 and 40 percent of unvaccinated adults respectively said the same.
The poll also revealed that the delta variant has been enough to push some Americans to get vaccinated, with 22 percent of unvaccinated respondents in the survey saying that news about the variant made them more likely to get vaccinated.
This means that we may see the media play up other variants even more in the future in their never ending quest to convince everyone to comply with vaccine mandates. In fact, Dr. Fauci has already started talking about another variant of COVID-19 even worse than delta surfacing that is stronger and deadlier than previous strains.
Right now, 58% of the American population has been given at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine, while just under 50% have been fully vaccinated. This is according to data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, convincing those who have held out thus far is going to be difficult as many people have legitimate fears about the side effects of the vaccines.
Thousands of serious side effects reported
Although the media downplays these fears, there are legitimate causes for concern, as a European Union database that is like the U.S.’s Vaccine Adverse Event Reporting System (VAERS) shows that millions of people have been seriously injured in Europe and nearly 20,000 have died after receiving COVID vaccines. Like VAERS, not all cases reported to the system have a proven connection, but there is reason to believe one exists.
One problem that is being seen is heart inflammation shortly after receiving the vaccine. There have been many reports of young men and teenagers experiencing an inflammation of the heart muscle known as myocarditis after receiving the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine. The cases typically occur within four days of receiving the second dose and although it can be treated if caught early, severe myocarditis can cause stroke, heart attack, heart failure or sudden cardiac death.
Some of the other serious post-vaccination adverse events that have been seen include the severe allergic reaction anaphylaxis and the potentially deadly combination of blood clots accompanied by low blood platelet levels.
Therefore, it should come as little surprise that so many people are fearful of these vaccines. That does not mean that no one in this group is taking COVID seriously. However, many believe that living a healthy lifestyle, boosting their immunity naturally and using common-sense precautions to avoid being infected by others is a more sensible approach.

The Dangers of Speaking the Truth Diminish If We Work Together
It’s becoming harder and harder for patriots to ignore the deep suppression of truth that’s happening in America today.
In all of my years in journalism, I have never received as many threats or been attacked by big companies like Google and Facebook as I have in 2021. I’d say that ever since we started covering widespread voter fraud, government-endorsed Pandemic Panic Theater, vaccine cover-ups, Critical Race Theory, and the various Neo-Marxist and Satanic agendas at play, I’ve been targeted more in months than the entirety of my life prior.
Speaking the truth is getting harder with so much censorship and suppression rampant. Prior to 2020, I was not a “conspiracy theorist” or an “anti-vaxxer,” but if there’s one thing the onslaught of exposed lies have taught us in the last 18 months, it’s that we cannot take what we’re told by the “arbiters of truth” at face value. There’s an agenda behind every message, a narrative driving every story, and a series of gigantic cover-ups designed to keep the masses in the dark.
This is why we’re building a network of news outlets that are willing to go against the narrative and expose the truth. We need help. We’re establishing strong partnerships with like-minded news outlets and courageous journalists. Even as Big Tech suppresses us, the honest messages they’re trying to quash are finding their way to the eyes and ears of patriots across the nation. With the help of new content partners like The Epoch Times and The Liberty Daily, we’re starting to see a real impact.
Our network is currently comprised of nine sites:
- NOQ Report
- Conservative Playlist
- Truth. Based. Media.
- Freedom First Network
- Based Underground
- Uncanceled News
- American Conservative Movement
- Conservative Playbook
- Our Gold Guy
Some of our content is spread across all of these sites. Other pieces of content are unique. We write most of what we post but we also draw from those willing to allow us to share their quality articles, videos, and podcasts. We collect the best content from fellow conservative sites that give us permission to republish them. We’re not ego-driven; I’d much rather post a properly attributed story written by experts like Dr. Joseph Mercola or Natural News than rewrite it like so many outlets like to do. We’re not here to take credit. We’re here to spread the truth.
I’ve said much of this before. From time to time I reframe this request for assistance by taking the most relevant message of the day and adjusting the story accordingly. We’ve discussed this network in previous articles. Now, it’s time to talk about help. First and foremost, we need financial assistance detailed below. But we could also use more writers who are willing to volunteer their thoughts for the sake of spreading the message. Those who are interested should contact me directly.
As far as money, we’re looking better than we have in the recent past, but we are currently experiencing a gap between revenue and expenses that cannot be overcome by click-ads and MyPillow promos alone (promo code “NOQ” by the way).
To overcome our revenue gap and keep these sites running, our needs fluctuate between $2200-$7800 per month. May, 2021, for example, was amazing and we almost broke even. June, revenue was sluggish at best and we had to make up a big difference out of our pockets. But we’re not just trying to get out of the red. If and when we start getting enough contributions to expand, we will do just that. Very few get into journalism to try to get rich and we’re definitely not among those who do. Our success is driven by spreading the truth, profitable or not.
The best way you can help us grow and continue to bring proper news and opinions to the people is by donating. We appreciate everything, whether a dollar or $10,000. Anything brings us closer to a point of stability when we can hire writers, editors, and support staff to make the America First message louder. Our Giving Fuel page makes it easy to donate one-time or monthly. Alternatively, you can donate through PayPal or Bitcoin as well. Bitcoin: 3A1ELVhGgrwrypwTJhPwnaTVGmuqyQrMB8
Time is short. As the world spirals towards radical progressivism, the need for truthful journalism has never been greater. But in these times, we need as many conservative media voices as possible. Please help keep NOQ Report and the other sites in the network going. Our promise is this: We will never sell out America. If that means we’re going to struggle for a while or even indefinitely, so be it. Integrity first. Truth first. America first.
Thank you and God Bless,
