State and federal governments currently can’t force people to receive a new coronavirus vaccine against their will but they can create consequences for not being vaccinated.
Vaccine research for a new coronavirus is moving forward at an unprecedented rate – Big Pharma is in a headlong race to the multi-billion $ Finish Line and the Government needs to be able to wave a magic wand that gets the economy and life back on track again – and these vested interests claim that a vaccine will lead to high rates of herd immunity in the population as a solution to stopping a virus from spreading. Interestingly, a recent Reuters poll found about a quarter of the American public isn’t interested in a vaccine for SARS-CoV-2. So, the federal government may have a tough time pushing the vaccine.
Naturally, Big Government is all over this. From this page at ClinicalTrials.gov. we can see the ad industry is doing its bit for Big Pharma and the government. Here, you can see that they’re testing which messages will resonate with the American people and what will work to get us to go along with the vaccination scheme.
This study by the Federal Government and Yale University are currently holding clinical trials on how best to persuade Americans into taking the Fauci-Gates COVID-19 vaccines. Listed on ClinicalTrials.gov they are testing different approaches to be used to convince us to vaccinate against COVID-19 once the vaccine becomes available.
The site lists the research rationale and procedure. Participants are randomized to 1 of 12 arms, with one control arm and one baseline arm. We will compare the reported willingness to get a COVID-19 vaccine at 3 and 6 months of it becoming available between the 10 intervention arms to the 2 control arms.)
Study participants are recruited online by Lucid, which matches census based sampling in online recruitment.

As you can see, they are going at it from every angle. They have tested these emotional “pulls” to see which is the most effective on us. The trial is completed according to the website but no results have yet been uploaded.

It’s sure going to be interesting to see how they sell us this crock.
