Should Australians be rewarded for vaccination?

MEDIA RELEASE: July 7 2021: Leading Australian research company, Lewers Research, has released findings on research conducted this week about the Covid-19 vaccine roll-out program and what role Australians think business should be playing in providing incentives to get vaccination numbers up.

Here are some of the findings:
• Australians are largely in favour of getting vaccinated (particularly those over 65)
• There is some scepticism about the role of businesses in incentivising vaccines (some feel it’s better to come from government)
• We see almost a perfect divide between those who believe incentives from business are a good initiative to encourage vaccinations, and those who believe it’s one’s civic duty and therefore shouldn’t be incentivised.

This research carries on from the series of free COVID-19 Community Response Now reports published by Lewers during the height of the pandemic in Australia in 2020.

“Lewers is committed in continuing to provide insight on how COVID-19 impacts the Australian community and businesses. The issue of corporations providing incentives for the vaccination was something we considered needed to be investigated. We were able to tap into our online community to get quick responses about how Australians really feel about these initiatives.” explained CEO, Lisa Lewers.
