The COVID-19 health surveys in short

These surveys support scientists and policymakers to assess the impact of the coronavirus crisis. Sciensano regularly launches a new questionnaire to:

  • monitor the evolution of recurring topics, such as mental and social well-being
  • assess a number of specific and current topics (this time, views about vaccination strategies will be addressed)

Thanks to your participation we can evaluate trends in time and study various public health topics.
