COVID-19 Vaccine Report

At the beginning of February, we invited people across Swindon to take part in a month-long survey to find out their views, attitudes and concerns towards the COVID-19 vaccine roll-out and the communications that have supported this.

This was part of a wider piece of work undertaken by local Healthwatch throughout England and nationally.

The report focussed on:

  • Attitudes towards the vaccine
  • Access to the vaccine for vulnerable groups
  • Logistical access to the vaccine
  • Experience of the roll-out

In Swindon, almost 800 people took part in the survey with the highest proportion of ages being 35 – 74 years old. Furthermore, nearly three-quarters of respondents identified as women.

Key Findings

  • 86% of respondents said nothing would stop them from getting the vaccine
  • While 88% of respondents said that their main motivation for getting the vaccination was to protect their friends and family from getting COVID-19
  • Only 5% of respondents said not being able to book a vaccine appointment at their GP surgery might stop them from getting vaccinated
