Covid-19 Health Communications Stakeholder Support

17 December 2020

Below are details of a COVID-19 Vaccine Information Survey distributed by the Department of Health. There is no obligation on any member of Civil Defence or the general public to complete same but you may wish to make a contribution towards our public health experts making an informed choice about a COVID-19 vaccine.

Scientists across the world are working to develop safe and effective vaccines for COVID-19. We expect some of these vaccines to be available in 2021.

The HSE is carrying out research to assess sentiment towards and understanding of a COVID-19 vaccine in the Republic of Ireland. This survey will give an understanding of current views and knowledge, and will help inform communications materials and information that will support people to make an informed choice about a COVID-19 vaccine.

Your participation in this survey is voluntary and your responses will remain anonymous and strictly confidential. To conduct the survey, the HSE have partnered with Core Research, an independent market research company who are bound by a strict code of conduct not to identify individual responses which guarantees complete confidentiality.

Please share this survey with your colleagues, members and stakeholders. You can take the survey here.

It takes 10 minutes to complete. The survey closes at 3pm on Friday, 18th December 2020, and is anonymous.

Your opinions are important to us and greatly appreciated.
