We would like to invite you to take part in our study investigating parental intentions to vaccinate their child for flu and side-effect expectations. The study has been approved by the King’s College London Psychiatry Nursing and Midwifery Research Ethics Committee (reference number: LRS-18/19-12008).
Taking part in the survey would involve completing a 15-minute anonymous survey which would ask you some demographic questions about yourself and your child as well as whether the child was vaccinated for flu in the 2018/19 season. We will show you a version of the ‘Protecting your child against flu’ leaflet. We will then ask you about your intentions to vaccinate your child for flu, whether you expect your child to experience side-effects from the vaccine, and how believable you think the leaflet is.
You can take part if you are 18 or older, speak fluent English and are the parent or guardian of a child born between September 1st 2008 and August 31st 2017. If you have recently taken part in a similar study investigating the phrasing of the ‘Protecting your child against flu’ leaflet, you cannot take part in this study.
If you decide to take part, you can complete the survey online at your convenience. This will take approximately 15 minutes.
As a thank you for taking part, upon completing the questionnaire adequately (i.e. spending enough time reading the leaflet, answering three factual questions about the leaflet correctly, and not having completed a previous similar study before), we will enter you into a prize draw for a £50 Amazon voucher.
If you would like to take part in, or would like more information about the study, please contact Louise Smith ([url=mailto:louise.e.smith@kcl.ac.uk]louise.e.smith@kcl.ac.uk[/url]).
