PPF Briefing – Do Canadians care which vaccine they get?

About this event

Do Canadians care which vaccine they get? With three vaccines on the market and a fourth approved, Dr. Peter Loewen asked Canadians if they prefer one vaccine over the other. Join PPF for a briefing of his findings including the public policy implications of preferences mirroring consumer choice. Dr. Loewen has been in the field collecting public opinion data since March of 2020. This report will rely on data from February 2021 and will make connections to trends over the last 10 months. Members of the media, all levels of government, and health related organizations are invited.

Date: March 16, 2021

Time: 11:00 a.m. – 11:45 a.m. ET

This report is part of PPF’s project focused on COVID-19 Vaccine Skepticism. This project is a 6-part report series focused on attitudes about COVID-19, vaccine hesitancy, public trust and support for government, and how this is all changing over time. These reports ask what lessons we might learn from a COVID-19 vaccine roll-out that can be applied more generally to vaccine skepticism. The project is authored by Dr. Peter Loewen and is based on data collected by the Media Ecosystem Observatory (MEO).

The first two reports in the series can be found here.

We will be hosting similar briefing sessions ahead of each report release. You can register for all sessions below. These reports will be responsive to the trends of the day, therefore, will we be sending more information ahead of each report.
