CVACS is the COVID-19 Vaccine Survey and aims to collect high quality, timely information to inform the development of campaigns and programmes to improve COVID-19 vaccination rates in South Africa.
Between November 2021 and March 2022, CVACS will conduct three rapid, longitudinal, phone-based surveys to understand public opinions and demand for COVID-19 vaccination in South Africa. SALDRU’s Brendan Maughan-Brown and Katherine Eyal co-lead the project, with collaboration from Kim Ingle and Tim Brophy (SALDRU) and Alison Buttenheim of University of Pennsylvania. The project team will:
- Engage with policy makers – through workshops and policy crowdsourcing – to co-create questionnaires to answer the most urgent programme and policy questions.
- Rapidly combine, summarize and share findings to ensure that campaigns and programmes are informed by real-time information.
- Rapidly make the data freely and publicly available to maximise the project’s impact.
