The next challenge for vaccine distribution is not the supply of vaccines, but the demand for vaccines. Many in our community are hesitant to take the vaccine. This survey about perceptions of the vaccines for COVID-19 and Flu, developed by a team of public health students, will guide vaccine promotion and help us stop the pandemic!
The Zuckerman College of Public Health (COPH) is working with Pima County Health Department (PCHD) to distribute this survey about COVID-19 and flu vaccines and the public's opinions about how to prevent infection.
We encourage all eligible adults to participate! Respondents who take the full survey have a chance to win a $25 gift card!
To qualify you must:
- be an adult, over 18 years of age
- be a Pima County resident,
- identify as being in one of the following groups: African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian, Native, Native Hawaiian, other Pacific Islander, American Indian, Alaska Native or Mixed Race.
The survey should take around 15-20 minutes to complete. No personally identifying information will be collected, and your responses will remain completely anonymous.
There is no cost to participate in this study. If you finish the survey, you will receive $5. See the attached flyer for more details and feel free to distribute among your Pima County networks.

Dr. Purnima Madhivanan guides the student team that developed this new vaccine hesitancy survey in collaboration with Pima County Health Department. She gives all the credit to the student team, “It really was not me, it was our amazing students, they organized the whole thing in collaboration with Pima County, all the focus groups, the whole process to develop this survey that will help us overcome vaccine hesitancy and encourage all our diverse communities to take the vaccine,” said Madhivanan.
Thank you to all our Public Health students for your great work on this project!
