The primary purpose of the COVID-19 Current Events Tracker (CET) survey is to continuously track key metrics of importance to the Campaign, including vaccine confidence, familiarity with and trust in HHS, and the impact of external events on key attitudes and behaviors. Tracking Americans’ attitudes about, perceptions of, and behavior toward the COVID-19 pandemic will inform the Campaign of key metrics around vaccine confidence and uptake, as well as towards vaccine messengers such as HHS and key public health officials. It will also inform changes in messaging strategies necessary to effectively reach the entire U.S. population or specific subgroups.
In light of the current COVID-19 crisis, there is an immediate need to inform U.S. adults on scientifically proven behaviors to decrease COVID-19 infection rates through a COVID-19 public education communication campaign. These preventative behaviors, to be targeted through the HHS ASPA COVID-19 Public Education Campaign (Campaign), include COVID-19 vaccine uptake/confidence, social distancing, wearing a mask, handwashing, as well as COVID-19-related clinical trial participation and flu vaccination uptake. This campaign includes a primary research component that is designed to use scientifically rigorous approaches to assess public attitudes, perceptions, and behaviors, and to test draft message materials with the Campaign audience. These research studies include a weekly survey, foundational focus groups, and a copy testing survey. The expedited clearance of our primary research components is critical to evaluating the above targets and informing ongoing communication efforts as soon as possible, therefore, we ask that OMB consider the emergency clearance process to allow for quick implementation.
