Description: The Vaccine Safety Datalink Assessment of Influenza Vaccination Status Survey is being done by the CDC to find out more about when and where people receive their influenza vaccines. The VSD is a collaborative project between the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and 8 health care organizations across the country. The VSD conducts vaccine safety studies based on questions and concerns from the medical, scientific and public communities.
This is a multi-year survey. In 2021 we are surveying 1800 women across the United States, including about 250 at HealthPartners who are currently pregnant or were pregnant during the influenza season. We are also asking several questions about the COVID vaccine, such as willingness to get a vaccine when available. Surveys will be available through the postal mail, an online link through email, and a QR code. Each participant will receive a $25 gift card for their time and effort for taking the survey.
