  • Trust in institutions, perceived benefits, risk perception, and people’s intention to get a COVID-19 vaccine   Order a copy of this article
    by Verra Verra, Ardion Beldad 
    Abstract: COVID-19 vaccine could end the current pandemic through optimum uptakes to create herd immunity. Hence, it is critical to understand the predictors of people’s intention to acquire a vaccine. To determine the factors influencing COVID-19 vaccine uptake in Jakarta, Indonesia, an online survey with 378 adults in the Special Capital Region of Jakarta was implemented. Results of hierarchical regression analysis reveals that 54% of the variance of the COVID-19 vaccination intention is explained by four predictors, namely trust in vaccine manufacturers, the perceived benefits of COVID-19 vaccination, beliefs in COVID-19 conspiracy theories, and concerns about the side effects of COVID-19 vaccination. Trust in various institutions (eg national government, health experts, and mass media) and concerns shared by people within one's network did not significantly influence vaccination intention. Results of the study confirm the value of trust in vaccine manufacturers, and perceived benefits and risks of vaccination for people’s vaccination.
    Keywords: COVID-19; trust in institutions; vaccination; perceived benefits; vaccine side effects; Indonesia.

    Abstract: This study assessed the prevalence of cigarette smoking by demographic characteristics. We conducted interactions between gender and race/ethnicity, and ones smoking status. We utilised secondary data comprised of 22,160 participants. Multinomial logistic regression was conducted to predict the probability of participants level of smoking intensity. Majority were non-smokers (93.1%), majority were female (51.2%). Many had a bachelors degree (23.9%) or some college, or an associate degree (22.8%). Many participants (59.8%) were married/living with a partner, and (25.7%) were single. Most participants spoke English (55.4%) and the largest race/ethnic groups were White (40.2%) followed by Latinos (21.8%). Age distribution was: 18 to 29-year-olds (22.9%), 30 to 39-year-olds (17.6%) and 40 to 49-year-old (16.2%). Findings suggest that ones demographics characteristics do play a role in smoking levels. Hence, public health efforts should create evidence-based interventions that fit each group to reduce disparities among smokers in California.
