The state Department of Health and Environmental Control wants to hear opinions about COVID-19 vaccinations.

Labeled as a South Carolina Pulse Survey, DHEC asks questions about whether survey participants are planning to be vaccinated.

DHEC launched a similar survey that ran from Jan. 25 to Feb. 8 and asked similar questions to the current survey. In that first survey, more than 31,000 responses were received in the survey that averaged only a minute to complete.

Demographically, the survey was completed mostly by adults aged 30 or older, with a little more than 30% male participation and nearly 70% female.

More than 80% of respondents said they planned to be vaccinated once they were eligible to receive it. Almost 70% responded that they strongly disagree with a statement that implied the respondent would not get vaccinated because COVID-19 was not a danger to the respondent.

While participants younger than 30 were not as represented in the survey, more than 60% of those in that group said they would get vaccinated.

Today is the last day; the survey ends at midnight.
