Research project to answer Canadians' questions and concerns about COVID-19 vaccination

  • Do you have questions or concerns about COVID-19 vaccination or COVID-19 disease?  

  • Are you unsure about getting vaccinated or having your child vaccinated? 

  • Would you like to have access to the latest data on COVID-19 through the Canadian COVID-19 researchers' network? 


We invite you to participate in the MIICOVAC research project. 

WHO? As part of the MIICOVAC research project, we are looking for people 18 years of age and older across Canada who have questions or concerns about the COVID-19 vaccination campaign or who are hesitant about getting vaccinated or having their child vaccinated against COVID-19.

The objective of the MIICOVAC project is to offer Canadians who have questions about the COVID-19 vaccination, an interview with a counsellor who will answer their questions. During an open exchange via a telehealth platform, the counsellor will address the participants' concerns in an open and honest manner by providing them with the information they need. If necessary, counsellors will be able to consult all Canadian scientists working on COVID-19 at any time via the CoVaRR-Net network. The goal is to help participants make their own decision about their own or their child's vaccination


  • Your participation in this research project consists of first completing an online questionnaire to find out your perception of the COVID-19 vaccine as well as some sociodemographic questions.
  • You will then be offered an interview of approximately 30 minutes with an immunization counsellor. You will then be asked to complete a second questionnaire. You may also volunteer for an additional interview to evaluate the research project.
  • Finally, a last questionnaire will be sent to you by email 6 weeks after the interview. Each questionnaire is estimated to take 5 to 10 minutes to complete.

All information collected will be kept confidential to the extent permitted by law.


Please complete the pre-questionnare, then proceed to book an appointment with a Virtual Immunization Counsellor.
