Parental attitudes towards Vaccine Policies Research Survey

Vaccine Survey Parental attitudesYou are invited to participate in a new research study that is being conducted by researchers from UNSW Sydney. You can download more information from here (Participant Information Statement).

Vaccinations are considered an important part of public health, and have been proven to have greatly reduced or even eradicated common diseases of the past like polio or smallpox. However in recent times there have been increasing pockets of low vaccination rates and outbreaks of previously suppressed diseases such as measles and pertussis.

This study aims to:

  • Examine the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs of parents of children aged 0-5 to immunisation incentives or disincentives
  • Examine how vaccination attitudes can be affected by opinions in media

If you decide to take part in the research study, we will ask you to complete an anonymous online survey. It should take approximately 30 minutes to complete the survey. We will collect general information on childhood vaccination and role of incentive.

Please check if you are eligible to take part in this survey:
