One in seven Americans dumped a friend because of their Covid vaccine status

Your immunization status now not only determines where you can work and travel, it can also determine how many friends you have.

A new poll has found that one in seven people have ended a friendship in the United States, depending on whether their friend has been vaccinated against the coronavirus.

A September OnePoll survey of 1,000 people found that 14% of respondents said the reason they abandoned their friends was because they had no intention of getting bitten.

The majority of vaccinated people surveyed consider their old friends to be “full-fledged anti-vaccines”. Among those vaccinated, some believe that those who have not taken the vaccine could put them and others at risk.

Reasons cited in the survey for not getting the vaccine included thinking it wasn’t working and worrying about side effects.

More than 60% of vaccinated people surveyed felt “very confident” about the choice to be vaccinated against Covid, only 33% felt “very confident” not to be vaccinated.

When asked where they get their information on Covid-19 vaccines, the majority, 45%, cited the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as the source, while 19% took to social media for their coronavirus information.

Friends Star Jennifer Aniston announced in August that she too had lost friends to the Covid vaccine, and criticized those influenced by “fear and propaganda.”

“There is always a large group of people who are anti-vaccine or just don’t listen to the facts. It is a real shame. I just lost a few people in my weekly routine who refused or didn’t disclose [whether or not they had been vaccinated], and that was unfortunate, “she told InStyle, believing that we have a” moral and professional obligation “to share our immunization status.

According to the OnePoll survey conducted on September 2, 81% of Democrats are vaccinated, 64% of Republicans are vaccinated and 69% of independents are vaccinated.
