Researchers at BC Children’s Hospital are interested in learning about the ways parents’ opinions and concerns about childhood vaccinations (shots) change over time.
The “Decreasing Parental Vaccine Hesitancy in Middle Childhood” study aims to explore shifts in attitudes about vaccines among parents of primary school children. They are currently recruiting parents through the help of PACs in Vancouver to let potentially interested parents know about the opportunity to participate in interviews with this study. They would like to ensure that a variety of perspectives are represented.
If you have a child ages 6-12 years, and your thoughts and feelings about vaccinations have changed since you first became a parent, you may be eligible to participate in a confidential interview that will improve healthcare in BC.
Interviews will take place in a private place and participants will receive a $25 gift card as a token. Thank you.
If you would like more information or are interested in an interview, please email VECstudies@cfri.ca or call 604-875-2187 and leave a message including your name, contact information, and that you are interested in the study “Vaccine Hesitancy in Middle Childhood.”
