LPHI Announces Findings from State-Wide COVID-19 Survey

LPHI conducted a state-wide survey on COVID-19 to ask participants about their knowledge of COVID-19, how their behaviors have changed during the pandemic, how the pandemic has impacted them, the status of their physical and mental health, vaccine willingness, and more. A total of 1,126 Louisiana residents over the age of 18 completed the survey, which ran from June 18 – 26, 2020. During that time, Louisiana was in Phase 2 of reopening, which permitted certain establishments to open at 50 percent capacity.

Overall, results from the survey show that many Louisianans are knowledgeable and worried about COVID-19 and have adopted the recommended preventive behaviors. Results also include a breakdown of Louisianan’s willingness to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Vaccine willingness increases with age, is higher in men than women, shows that White Louisianans were more likely than Black Louisianans to state they would get the vaccine, and those with health insurance coverage are more likely to state they would get the vaccine compared to those without insurance.
