East Riding of Yorkshire Council urging residents to take part in its Covid-19 vaccine survey
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is asking residents to complete its Covid-19 vaccine survey.
The move comes as the area continues to take part in the massive rollout of vaccinations in the battle against the virus.
The short survey should take around five minutes to complete online and features a range of multiple choice questions.
More than 1,000 residents have already completed the survey and the findings will be used by the council’s public health team to learn more about how residents feel about the Covid-19 vaccines. This in turn will be used to target communications from the council about the vaccine.
Since December 2020, there have been over 131,000 cumulative doses of the Covid-19 vaccines given to people living in the East Riding and over 20 million nationally.
Cllr Richard Burton, leader of the council, said: “Confidence in the Covid-19 vaccines is a vital factor in supporting the NHS rollout of the vaccination programme.
“In the East Riding we are asking residents to complete an anonymous survey to understand more about what people think of the Covid-19 vaccines.
“Whether you are someone who can’t wait to roll up their sleeves or someone who would like to know more about anything specific, your opinion will help us make sure we are sharing the right information from the right trusted sources.
“The survey is for all adults, including those who have already had the vaccine.
“Already, over 1,000 people have completed the survey, however we want to encourage more people from every background to contribute to ensure the survey really does represent the make-up of every household, village and town in the East Riding.”
All responses and data from the survey will be anonymous and.
