Hello! Welcome to the study, Anxiety and perceptions about the COVID-19 vaccination amongst those managing food allergy. Please carefully read the information below before you click on “OK.”

This research study was developed by Canadian food allergy researchers and allergists who want to know what families (parents, caregivers) of children aged 18 years and younger with food allergy think about the COVID-19 vaccine. This study is open to all families in Canada with at least one child with food allergy. This study has been approved University of Manitoba Health Research Ethics Board

You are not eligible to participate if your child (age 18 years or younger) does not have a food allergy, and/or you don’t live in Canada.

A bit of background:
The COVID-19 pandemic has altered virtually every aspect of life. The introduction of COVID-19 vaccinations is the first glimmer of hope to end the pandemic. There have been very few allergic reactions to the vaccines. However, the perceived risk of these vaccines amongst families managing food allergy is not well documented.

This survey includes questions on your child’s food allergy, and your perceptions of the COVID-19 vaccine.

What we will do with the information:
By completing this survey, it is assumed that you consent to take part. We have no way of identifying who you are, as we never ask your name, phone number, email address, social insurance number or any other information that could possibly identify you.

We will pool, then analyse all of the data from this study. Data will be stored on a secure server at the University of Manitoba for 5 years after the publication of this study.

Do I have to participate:
Not at all. You decide if you want to participate or not. If you have read this far and decide to not take part, simply close your browser. No one will know if you have decided to end here.

If you have carefully read this far, and would like to participate, please click on “OK.” Please complete the survey in one sitting. It is not possible to save your survey responses and return to complete them later.

What if I have questions:
If you would like to ask questions to the study lead, Dr J Protudjer, you can email her at Jennifer.Protudjer@umanitoba.ca or leave her a voice mail on 204 480 1384 (confidential voicemail).
