Frederick County Survey on Vaccine Interest

Thank you for your participation in our survey on vaccine interest! Our English survey received 20,580 results and our Spanish survey received 269. Over 50% of people who responded said that they were planning on getting the vaccine as soon as it became available to them. Of those respondents who said they weren’t sure or were not planning on getting the vaccine immediate, the most common concerns were about safety and side effects. There were thousands of comments written in, and we will use the information from the survey to help develop our messaging to make sure we’re answering the questions that you have asked.
