All

Sentiments toward the vaccines and the vaccination process.

Summary

When the Australian Government launched the COVID-19 vaccination rollout program in February 2021, 86% of NSSS-9 participants indicated they were likely or very likely to get the
vaccine. Participants had the option of providing a free text response about their vaccination likelihood and 759 people contributed. Comments were analysed to provide a
backdrop of older people’s sentiments and perspectives on COVID-19 vaccination as we now head into a new vaccination phase.
