Today, Alder Health Services, in partnership with LGBT centers and LGBT health clinics across Pennsylvania, is collecting data for a statewide Pennsylvania LGBTQ COVID-19 vaccine survey. It is important to know what our community is thinking about the COVID-19 vaccine! LGBTQ+ Pennsylvanians aged 18 years and older are invited to participate. Visit bit.ly/vaccinesurveyPA
The survey is approved by the IRB at Bryn Mawr College, and all responses are confidential. This is the first statewide LGBTQ COVID-19 vaccine survey in the country and is modeled after a regional survey in Boulder, Colorado.
Why is this data important? Because state and federal vaccine tracking systems are not measuring the LGBTQ community. We need to know if our community is willing to receive the vaccine or not, and if not, what barriers are in the way. This is a short survey (about 5 minutes) and your voluntary participation will help your local LGBT community centers across Pennsylvania in our efforts to keep our communities safe from COVID-19! Participate here!
