COVID Vaccine Preparedness Study

Research project

Covid vaccination

What is the COVID Vaccine Preparedness study?

A safe and accessible vaccination program is likely to be the long-term solution to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and COVID-19 vaccines are now beginning to become available in Australia.

We know that people have questions and are looking for information about the vaccines and the rollout process. That’s why we’re looking to hear from people who are likely to be prioritised to receive and/or deliver the vaccines. This includes healthcare workers, aged and disability care workers, people aged 70 years old and older, and adults with an underlying health conditions.

We want to know what questions you have, what information you want and how you want to get that information. This is your chance to shape the messages and the design of the communication materials developed by the Victorian government.
