The study aimed to determine whether or not there were differences that exist in the COVID19 vaccine hesitancy when the respondents are grouped according to the various stated factors, such as moral obligation (factor 1), health status (factor 2), vaccine effectiveness (factor 3), potential risk of the vaccine (factor 4), vaccination process and implementation (factor 5), and vaccine literacy (factor 6). The research used quantitative inferential research to gather respondents who meet the specified criteria. In total, the study has gathered 112 respondents and 50 for pilot testing, using Google Forms as a way to receive the data and the use of descriptive analysis as a point of summarization in a constructive manner. For each question, the Likert scale was used to assess the respondents’ answer to determine whether they are COVID-19 vaccine hesitant with regard to the stated perceived factors. Using fixed points ranging from one (1) to five (5), with one (1) being the lowest or strongly disagree, and five (5) as the highest or strongly agree. The given data were then put on themes such as Cronbach’s-alpha, One-way ANOVA, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, and Ttest for independent samples, all of which were used to evaluate and determine whether the data are significant to the study or not. Within the given data, the study has concluded that there is a significant difference in COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy when grouped according to sex and monthly income. Meanwhile, all other factors have been shown to be not significant.
