What is the MIND the Vax Gap project?
We want to understand parents' views on vaccination and factors that may affect their decisions about vaccinating their children.
We also want to find out what concerns parents of children with neurodevelopmental disorders might have about getting their children vaccinated. We hope this information will help us develop better ways to support parents to make their vaccination decisions and access vaccination services more easily.
Who can take part?
Parents with children:
- aged under 18 years
- who have a diagnosis of autism, or a diagnosis of Down Syndrome, or from general population (typically developing)
What will I be asked to do?
- Complete one 10-15 minute online survey
