Today, Sciensano launches the 8th COVID-19 health survey, which focusses on your well-being and lifestyle. The previous COVID-19 health surveys had between 20,000 and 40,000 participants! Once again, we count on your participation.
The 8th COVID-19 health survey awaits you
Are you 18 or older and living in Belgium? Then complete our 8th online survey before the 18th of October. This will only take 15 minutes of your time and your participation really makes a difference.
Call for people of all ages, including the youngest ones (18-29y)!
Young people participate less in the COVID-19 health surveys, yet this is important! Our surveys keep track of the health and well-being of all age groups throughout the coronavirus crisis. We need the help of young people as well!
Sharing is caring (also among young adults!)
Thanks for sharing our questionnaire as widely as possible among your friends, family and colleagues (who are 18 years or older and live in Belgium). We are counting on you!
The COVID-19 health surveys in short
These surveys support scientists and policymakers to assess the impact of the coronavirus crisis. Sciensano now launches a new questionnaire to:
- monitor the evolution of recurring, important topics, such as mental and social well-being
- assess a number of specific and current topics (this time we ask questions concerning your vaccination status and any side effects you experienced after getting your vaccine).
Thanks to your participation we can evaluate trends in time and study various public health topics.
