Influenza Vaccine, Vaccine Knowledge, Vaccine Perception, Vaccine Acceptance, COVID-19


National COVID-19 vaccination campaign officially started on March 1, 2021 in the Philippines. Aside from COVID-19, seasonal flu caused by Influenza viruses becomes an additional health concern for the co-infection. This study aimed to investigate the associated factors related to influenza vaccine acceptance among adults in Cavite during the COVID-19 pandemic. The study also intended to investigate the significant relationship between influenza vaccine knowledge, influenza vaccine perceptions, and influenza vaccine acceptance. Data was collected in the province of Cavite using an online self-administered questionnaire. The significance of associations were determined using Pearson Chi-Square and its strength was identified using Cramér's V while Spearman’s Rho was used to measure correlations. The results of this study showed that most adults got a high level of knowledge (69.55%), the average of the respondents have a fairly positive perception (Mean=3.55), and only some (35.8%) showed acceptance to influenza vaccine during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sex, and educational attainment had a strong significant association while employment status had a moderate significant association with Influenza vaccine knowledge. Educational attainment had a strong significant association with influenza vaccine perception while employment status has a strong association with Influenza vaccine acceptance. The study concludes that a high level of influenza vaccine knowledge would lead to a positive influenza vaccine perception and will increase vaccine acceptance. Moreover, influenza vaccine perception has a strong positive relationship with vaccine acceptance.
