COVID-19 Vaccine Confidence and Hesitancy Among Schools’ Stakeholders: A Philippine Survey

Dave Arthur Roldan Robledo, Aris Alea Lapada, Frosyl Fabrea Miguel, Zeba Farooqi Alam.

The aim of the study was to determine the perception of schools’ stakeholders on the COVID-19 vaccination
towards readiness to opening schools after prohibiting the face-to-face classes last March 2020. The campaigns
were done online using social media platforms. A total of 2034 participants has participated in the survey.
Results revealed that participants were dominated by teachers; most of them came from Luzon; ages ranged from
13-19 years old; and female participants. The highest percentage of the reason for vaccine confidence is ―They
believed that the vaccine would give them immunity from the virus COVID-19‖ while the highest percentage of
the reason for COVID-19 hesitancy was ―The vaccine might have a possible effect on genetic make-up‖.
Furthermore, when participants are grouped according to profile, region, sex, and age, the confidence still a little
higher than those who hesitate to get vaccinated by the COVID-19 vaccines. Among the demographics of the
participants, only their sex has a significant association with their COVID-19 vaccine confidence and hesitancy
(x2 = 42.43, p=0.000). This study recommends that health services at school should be strengthened and
vaccination among school children should be part of the school-based management system hand in hand with the
health practitioners.

Key words: COVID-19 vaccines, Philippine School Stakeholders, School reopening, Vaccine confidence, Vaccine hesitancy
