Factors Associated with University Students' Intention of Influenza Vaccination: A Health Belief Model Approach
Health belief model
The present study aimed to examine factors related to influenza vaccination intention among university students. A total of 629 valid self-administered questionnaires were collected from three universities in Taipei. The major findings were as follows. 1. University students had middle-high levels of perceived susceptibility, perceived seriousness of influenza, and middle levels of perceived benefits, and self-efficacy of influenza vaccination. 2. Perceived susceptibility of influenza and self-efficacy was positively associated with intention to receive an influenza vaccine, while perceived barriers of influenza vaccination was negatively associated with intention to influenza vaccination. 3. Prior influenza vaccination uptake, receiving advice from medical personnel, family, and friends were associated with influenza vaccination. 4. Perceived influenza susceptibility, influenza vaccination self-efficacy, receiving advices from family and friends, and searching online influenza information were significant associated with influenza vaccination intention. According to the results, it was suggested that schools and governments could strengthen influenza susceptibility messages, self-efficacy, and ehealth literacy to promote influenza vaccination. Parents and friends could discuss influenza vaccination with students.
