Vaccine Inequalities: Reflecting on the inclusivity of the COVID-19 vaccine programme and collaboration with the third sector.
Voluntary Health Scotland is conducting research to assess the extent to which the COVID-19 vaccine rollout in Scotland sought to reduce inequalities and foster collaboration with the third sector, in order to make future vaccine programmes more inclusive and establish the third sector as a valued partner in public health initiatives.
We would love to hear from organisations and partners about your experience during the rollout and views on the public health interventions at the time.
The survey will run for three weeks, closing on Friday 27th of May. It should take around fifteen minutes to complete.
This follows on from our research published in April 2021, Vaccine Inclusion: Reducing Inequalities One Vaccine at a Time, which sought to anticipate any potential gaps in the vaccine programme as it was being rolled out.
We will be feeding the information that we gather back to Public Health Scotland and also the Scottish Government COVID-19 Vaccination Programme.
