Is there an increase in ‘Anti-Vaccination’ attitudes worldwide?

Published: 11/27/2019

Help the WSAVA Vaccination Guidelines Group (VGG) to find out.

We need your input into a new survey about animal owner attitudes towards vaccination.
News outlets are increasingly reporting that some people are declining vaccination for their animals, even when the medicines are affordable and readily available. This attitude is often called 'anti-vaccination' or 'vaccine hesitancy'.

The VGG wants to know what you are seeing in your clinic and in your country so we have created a survey for companion animal veterinarians to evaluate how client attitudes towards vaccination are changing.  The survey is in three parts and requires only 10-15 minutes to complete.

Please do it now because your contribution will provide us with essential global data on this important issue.
 
 

The survey is also available in six other languages: Chinese,  French, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish. The deadline for completion is January 14 2020.

To thank the WSAVA Community for supporting this survey, we will select one participant at random to win a US$500 donation (or local currency equivalent) to a veterinary charity or non-profit of their choice. To enter, please provide your name and email address at the end of the survey.

We are grateful to our Affiliate Member HealthforAnimals for sponsoring this prize.
