Covid-19 Vaccine Survey - 2020/21
In December 2020, with the introduction of the long-awaited COVID-19 vaccine, Healthwatch Redbridge were made aware that some communities and individuals were expressing a reluctance in having the vaccination.
We wanted to understand why there might be a reluctance to being vaccinated within some communities, and whether further support and information was needed to ensure people were able to make an informed decision on immunisation.
We created an online survey which was shared with local communities and stakeholders. The objective was simple; to discover whether people would have the vaccine if it was offered to them and whether they would encourage a family member or loved one to do so also. The survey was shared through hospital trusts, Councillors, community groups and social media.
