BISBEE, Ariz. (02/15/2023) – Cochise County opinions matter to Cochise County Health & Social Services! In Fall 2022, we asked you to respond to the Vaccine Opinion Survey. We wanted to find out about the thoughts and beliefs of the people in our county regarding vaccinations to better serve them.
The Vaccine Opinion Survey was conducted from October – December 2022 and was designed to collect information from adults in Cochise County regarding their opinions on vaccines and vaccination.
Overall, the survey received 143 responses and the qualitative and quantitative results from this survey helped paint a nuanced picture of vaccine opinions among Cochise County residents. There are individuals who are not vaccinated and do not wish to be vaccinated, and there are many more who have received a vaccine or who have some reservations about vaccination that could potentially be addressed with time or improved messaging.
One of the questions we asked was about holding drive-through influenza vaccination events. Of those who had been vaccinated against COVID-19, 63% said they would be interested in this type of event for their annual flu shot. CCHSS plans to conduct a pilot drive-through event for flu shots this spring because we now know it is never too late to be vaccinated for influenza.
We invite you to read the whole report. It is important to note the results are specific to the 143 people who responded and do not represent the opinions of the whole county.
