Question: 

I have received an email inviting me to participate in a COVID-19 Vaccine Survey. Is this a legitimate survey sponsored by the BC CDC or Provincial Health Authority or a scam?

Answer: 
ImmunizeBC is aware of a COVID-19 vaccine survey launched by the Canadian National Vaccine Safety (CANVAS) Network and administered by BC’s Children Hospital. More information about this survey can be found here. In addition BC COVID-19 SPEAK Round 2 Survey was conducted but is now closed. This survey was a follow up to the  first survey in May 2020 known as BC COVID-19 SPEAK: Your story, Our future.
 
At the same time, we have seen reports of email scams posing as a COVID-19 survey. Please exercise your usual precautions in determining if an email is real or not.
