According to a new study from Medicareplans.com, a shockingly high number of Americans believe that injection with a coronavirus vaccine should be a prerequisite for citizens seeking government benefits like Medicare.
The top reason why they support such a stance is, according to the study, that they believe the unvaccinated drive up medical costs.
The top reason why supporters favor mandated vaccines is because unvaccinated people are a threat to public health (60%).
Fifty-six percent of Americans who support a mandate say it is because unvaccinated people are straining medical resources and driving up costs, while 54% want vaccines mandated because Medicare beneficiaries are among the vulnerable populations who are at a greater risk of severe illness or death from COVID.
Furthermore among those who are unvaccinated a stunning 4 out of 10 claimed they would be willing to forego any medicare benefits themselves if vaccinations eventually became required in order to receive the benefit.
