Summary of report content
During this interim period over 1800 surveys were completed (and a further 269 partially completed.) The survey is due to close on 31 March 2021.The purpose of the survey is to understand from people how to improve the vaccine service and vaccine confidence and thereby uptake through feedback (both what is working well and what could be changed).
- 92.5% of respondents have received a vaccine and some have had two doses.
- The most common reasons for choosing to have the vaccine were to protect themselves, and/or protect friends and family.
- 96% of respondents had a positive reaction to information on when and where they would/could receive the vaccine, with 90% clear on how to confirm attendance or non-attendance.
- 86% of respondents reported no problems in attending the first vaccination appointment.
- 98% of respondents felt safe or very safe at the vaccination site(s). Lots of people spoke of cleanliness of facilities and this suggests that it is important aspect of installing confidence in the programme.
- HW West Sussex asked those who wanted to be vaccinated if there was anything that may stop them from receiving a vaccine when offered one. 105 people responded, with over half (58%) saying that nothing would stop them.
- 15% selected that reports of problems with people vaccinated before me may alter their decision. Nearly 23% would have issues if they had to travel a long distance to be vaccinated. Just short of 10% of respondents may decline depending on which vaccine is offered.
