EVI Covid-19 Vaccination Pulse Survey Insights

September - October 2021
  • Barriers: As in July and August, the top barrier reported by unvaccinated respondents across all cities in September and October was being worried about getting sick or experiencing side effects from the vaccine (43-66% of respondents in each city). The second most common concern reported was being worried about having to miss work in order to get the vaccine (12-23%).
  • Motivators: The top potential motivator for unvaccinated respondents across all cities was wanting more time to wait and see whether the vaccine works (30-53% of respondents in each city). More time to “wait and see” was also the top motivator in July/August. Only a small share of respondents said that a vaccine requirement for work or for other activities would potentially motivate them to get the vaccine (2-19%).
  • Attitudes and Beliefs: Unvaccinated survey respondents in all cities reported being concerned that there was not enough information on how the vaccine might interact with other health conditions (55-71% of respondents in each city) and concerned that the vaccine was developed too quickly compared with other vaccines (54-72%). These were also among the top concerns reported by unvaccinated respondents in July and August. Less than one third of unvaccinated respondents reported thinking that the vaccine was safe or effective (6-29%).
  • Booster Shots: Among survey respondents that had received a Covid-19 vaccine already, many said they intended to get a booster shot or have gotten one already (38-64% of respondents in each city), but many were also undecided about getting a booster shot (30-48%).
