According to a national poll conducted by the Trafalgar Group and Convention of States Action in July 2021, the vast majority of Americans, 71%, are opposed to mandatory COVID vaccinations for Americans.
They believed that vaccines are a personal choice of the individual.
Meanwhile, 21.8% believed vaccines should be made mandatory and 6.8% stated they were unsure.
And according to the poll, it did not seem to matter what side of the political spectrum a person fell, the majority in both the Republican and Democrat parties believed that vaccines should not be mandatory.
Though the Democrats were less adamant, nevertheless, 58.7% believed that vaccines were a personal choice. This compared to 87.3% of Republicans who held the same opinion and 67.2% of those who were not affiliated with a political party.
Mark Meckler, President of the Convention of States Action, ironically noted that those who are demanding vaccinations, are often the same crowd stating that a woman should have the right to abort because it is her body. Apparently, they don’t hold the same opinion when it comes to vaccines.
“Americans have never taken kindly to being told what to do, and they are not going to start now. … [A]fter being told ‘my body, my choice’ for nearly five decades by the same crowd now hypocritically pushing mandates, is it any wonder the public isn’t on board?”
And along a similar theme, when revelations surfaced that the British government was considering requiring a COVID vaccine passport for anyone wanting to eat at a restaurant or go to a pub or nightclub, there was such an immediate backlash, that within hours, the government was forced to back down.

DISCLOSURE: I am not an anti-vaxxer, I am fully vaccinated for COVID, but I believe people should have the freedom to make their own choices on vaccinations.
