Covid-19COVID-19 Vaccine, Preference, Acceptance, Determinants, Correlation


This study focused on correlating the determinants of COVID-19 vaccine preference among senior high school students of De La Salle Medical and Health Science Institute. The general objective of this study was to discover the factors that influence COVID-19 vaccination preference, hesitancy, and acceptability among senior high school students. This research is important, especially given the current situation, because herd immunity should be obtained as soon as possible. After all, it helps our bodies resist the fatal virus that causes COVID-19. The study employed a descriptive research design. An online questionnaire is the instrument used for data collection. Frequency percentage, mean, standard deviation and chi-square test are the statistical tools used to interpret the data received from data instruments. The study revealed that there is a correlation between preferences and the level of acceptance of an individual for the vaccine. However, only one of the many preferences has a correlation with the level of acceptance, which is the number of doses in a vaccine. This research also discovered that the more immunizations an individual receives, including boosters, the more immunocompetent they perceive themselves to be and the more vaccines they accept. All in all, even though most of the preferences had no significant correlation with vaccine acceptance among DLSMHSI students, knowing which preferences on each determinant are beneficial to individuals with high or very high vaccine acceptance would help other studies.
