Cynics suggest that the desire to get everyone vaccinated is caused by a desire to eliminate the "control group" against which the results for the vaccinated group can be compared.

Suppose that's true. It would mean that the Powers That Be are worried by (i) the low efficacy of the vaccine, and/or (ii) serious side effects of the vaccine.

Maybe they fear that if the public recognises (i) or (ii) they will wreak revenge.
