The focus of the survey is on healthcare workers attitudes to vaccination and intention, specifically in relation to key issues with questions based on the 5C model:
- Confidence in vaccines
- Constraints in accessing vaccination services
- Calculation of risks and benefits associated with vaccination
- Complacency in obtaining additional vaccine doses
- Collective responsibility and the extent to which vaccinations are accepted with regard to the health and well-being of others
Answers will be anonymous and all information provided through this questionnaire will be used for research purposes only, and the data stored securely and treated with complete confidentiality. The study has been ethically approved and reviewed by the HSE’S Committee on Ethical Reviews of Health Related Research Studies.
It should only take 5 to 10 minutes to complete and HCWs will be asked questions about themselves and about seasonal influenza and COVID-19 vaccines. The deadline for submission is Friday 23rd December. Participation by healthcare workers from all areas will be greatly appreciated and it will support planning of HSE immunisation programmes.
