Episode 22: Optimise Study - vaccination knowledge, attitudes and beliefs
Australians are now coming out in droves to get their COVID-19 vaccines as we strive towards the double dose targets that will allow us more freedoms according to the National Plan to transition Australia’s National COVID Response.
This is supported by new research conducted in July as part of the Optimise Study, which found that more than 86 per cent of Victorians who were part of the study are now definitely intending to be vaccinated or are already vaccinated. This is compared to November 2020 when just 61% of the cohort indicated their intention to get vaccinated.
For this episode of our series all about COVID-19 – the virus, variants and vaccines, we're joined by Chief Investigators for the Optimise Study, Professor Margaret Hellard and Dr Katherine Gibney.
