COVID-19 vaccine concerns: research registration

Live in Thurrock and not taken up your COVID-19 vaccine offer? Or not intending to?

We're Upshot: an independent research agency working with Thurrock Council.
Thank you for joining our research.

We're really interested in attitudes towards the COVID-19 vaccine - and are keen to hear your questions and concerns. Our insight is impartial and unbiased: we just want to have honest, open discussions around genuine concerns, so we can work with health professionals to provide the answers people need and want. We particularly want to speak to people of black, Asian and minority ethnicities, where uptake appears to be lower despite an increased risk.

From mid-March to mid-April we're inviting you to take part in an informal, anonymous phone interview to share your thoughts. Interviews take place at a time of your choosing and last 30-45 minutes. We'll pay you for your time with a £20 e-voucher you can spend in supermarkets and online stores including Amazon, Argos, B&Q, John Lewis, M&S, Nike, Primark, Sports Direct and Uber Eats.

Please use this online form to register your interest. You can also use it to share questions and concerns without opting in to an interview, if that's what you prefer.

Thank you for getting involved.
