Title: Does ethnicity influence people’s preferences for the attributes of COVID-19 vaccine: evidence for a large discrete choice experiment in the UK.

The uptake of the COVID-19 vaccination programme in the UK varied widely across ethnic groups. A choice experiment-based survey was conducted, October-November 2021, to investigate the factors that have led to the differences in uptake across eight ethnic groups. The presentation will focus on the factors related to the characteristics of the vaccine (effectiveness, side effects, reduction in transmission, and vaccine incentives).

Please note, the timings are not confirmed. The seminar is expected to begin at 12pm and last for an hour.
