  1. Cultural assessment on Flu vaccines regarding healthcare workers and those patients who are at risk   


    Review your problem or issue and cultural assessment. Consider how the findings connect to your topic and intervention for your capstone change project. Write a list of three to five objectives for your proposed intervention. Below each objective, provide a one or two-sentence rationale.

    After writing your objectives, provide a rationale for how your proposed project and objectives advocate for autonomy and social justice for individuals and diverse populations.

Cultural Assessment on Flu Vaccines Regarding Healthcare Workers and those Patients who are

Purpose and Thesis

            Cultural focuses on identification of knowledge deficits and negative attitudes on flu vaccines to be addressed via targeted public education program. Lack of knowledge and poor attitudes contributes to underutilization of flu vaccination services among at risk populations.


  1. To identify knowledge deficits related to flu vaccines among at risk populations.

Rationale: Lack of knowledge about flu vaccine efficacy, safety and value contributes to poor vaccination rates among at risk populations (Jamison, Quinn, & Freimuth, 2019).

  1. To identify poor flu vaccine attitudes among at risk populations.

Rationale: Some of the key poor attitudes and perceptions that contribute to poor utilization of flu vaccines among at risk populations is pharmaceutical companies are motivated by profits. This leads to distrust to pharmaceutical companies and vaccines (Jamison et al., 2019 ). This attitudes and perceptions need to be addressed through targeted public education to improve level of utilization of flu vaccines among at risk populations.

  1. To develop a targeted public education program to address knowledge deficits and poor attitudes related to flu vaccines.

Rationale: Public education need to focus on affirmation of the efficacy, safety, and value of vaccination to address knowledge deficits and poor attitudes. Public education is necessary so as to address issues such as vaccine refusal and hesitancy, which undermine global immunization campaigns (Jamison et al., 2019).

How Proposed Project and Objectives Advocate for Autonomy and Social Justice for Individuals and Diverse Populations

            Vaccine confidence is determined by trust in the system that produces them and trust in vaccines as products. In the United States, this system consists of complex network connecting government agencies, pharmaceutical companies, and the healthcare system (Jamison et al., 2019). African Americans have been found to be less trusting to the government and pharmaceutical companies and are more likely to doubt their motives compared to the Whites. Therefore, Whites are significantly more likely to be immunized than African Americans. This contributes to longstanding disparities in vaccination rates (Jamison et al., 2019).  Development of an understanding on the influence of personal experiences and beliefs on vaccination uptake is considered as the key designing interventions, testing of the interventions, and deploying interventions, which are tailored to improve vaccine coverage and acceptance in outbreak and routine settings (Kilich et al., 2020).

Improved flu vaccine knowledge and improved attitudes among African American can contribute to improved individual autonomy in making informed decisions concerning vaccines. Even if an individual will choose to be unvaccinated they need to make such a decision from scientifically informed point of view (Kilich et al., 2020). Besides, at risk populations deserve education to promote the concept of social justice for all. Targeted public education can help improve vaccination rates among at risk populations.  Influenza vaccination is recommended for all individuals since it indirectly protects them from contradicting the disease. In that regard, vaccination is a prosocial act (Böhm et al., 2016).
