Parents, tell us what you think about flu vaccines for your children

Parents, tell us what you think about flu vaccines for your children

Are you a parent or guardian of a 1, 2 or 3 year old? Or has your child recently turned 4? Have your say on flu vaccinations for your child and make a difference next winter!

Why are we running this survey?

We’re working with Derbyshire County Council’s Public Health team and the NHS, to find out how future flu campaigns can be better for parents and guardians. By getting feedback on child flu vaccines, health authorities hope to tailor their messaging and support services to address any concerns or barriers parents may face.

Kirsty Ball, Head of Vaccination and Immunisations at the Integrated Care Board said

“We are always looking to improve how we do things. It is important for us to understand how families make decisions about vaccinations so that we can offer the right kind of support.  We appreciate you taking the time to share your views with us.”

What will we ask you on the survey?

  • If your child has or hasn’t been vaccinated against flu
  • If anything influenced your decision
  • How you learned about flu vaccinations
  • Where abouts in Derbyshire you live.

How long does the survey take?

The survey takes just five minutes to complete.

How can I give my feedback?

We’re also looking for parents and guardians to speak to us by answering a few short questions over the phone. If you’d like to take part in a short interview, please contact us on tel: 01773 880 786 or email: enquiries@healthwatchderbyshire.co.uk.
