Acceptance assessment heterologous prime-boost vaccination regimen

Dear Technet community users, we are looking into the acceptability of the heterologous prime-boost vaccination regimen. This is in the pipeline and would deliver similar antigens for a disease through different vaccine types in a defined sequence and interval to produce stronger immunity. If you are interested please take part: link to survey You can indicate if you would like to be informed about the results directly - and any useful insights will be shared more widely. Thank you!
