COVID-19 is an infectious disease that is caused by the SARS-COV-2 virus, and one of the best ways to prevent and slow down the transmission of the disease is by acquiring the vaccine. Thus, this study aimed to evaluate the correlation of vaccine brands and vaccine hesitancy among selected students from De La Salle Medical and Health Sciences Institute. The study utilized a quantitative research design where a total of 229 respondents were surveyed through google forms. The study found out that Pfizer BioNTech was the most preferred brand. Furthermore, the level of hesitancy of the majority of the respondents was neutral with regards to unavailability of the common brands such as Pfizer BioNTech, Moderna, Oxford-AstraZeneca, Johnson and Johnson Jannsen, Sinovac, and Sinopharm. The study also revealed that there was a significant relationship between vaccine brands and vaccine hesitancy through the use of a Chi-square test. This implied that vaccine brands were associated with vaccine hesitancy of the respondents before vaccination or for not being vaccinated. The Department of Health and the local government units should reinforce their vaccination campaigns regarding vaccine information to increase the publics’ awareness, knowledge, and confidence with regards to vaccination.
