Independent and Dependent Variables Affecting Vaccine Uptake

                Perceptions on the apparent effects of vaccines based on scientific evidence are the main factors that determine the rate of vaccine uptake among patients and staff. Therefore, patient perceptions are the dependent variables that are affected by medical facts, the dependent variable. 

People’s decision on whether to take or not to take vaccines is dependent on the concerns that people have about the vaccine based on both facts and personal emotions. While people who refuse to take vaccines may seem unreasonably paranoid, their decisions are primarily logical (Smith et al., 2017). Smith et al. (2017) discovered parents base their decisions on their children’s vaccination on their perceptions of the effects of these drugs on their children and the medical evidence on the likelihood of contracting the disease. Therefore, to increase vaccine uptake among patients and medical staff, it is necessary to address these factors.

For the EBP project’s success, data on the various scientific facts on the flu vaccine and the public’s multiple beliefs is necessary to have. The practice of vaccination has been responsible for saving millions since its inception (Habersaat & Jackson, 2019). Changing the opinion of the staff and nurses on vaccines is critical in improving the intake rate. Hence, one has to first identify the myths and beliefs they are trying to prove wrong. Afterward, to change vaccines’ perceptions, it is necessary to collect all the evidence-based research on the vaccine’s effects. Research shows that lack of trust is a significant reason people do not accept vaccinations (Song, 2013). Therefore, it is essential to provide the target vaccination sample with both the positive and the negative impacts of the vaccine and the possible consequences if they are not vaccinated.

Changing public perceptions about vaccines by countering myths with evidence is necessary for increasing their acceptance in society. An increased vaccination uptake will reduce incidences of preventable deaths. Therefore, nurses and other medical professionals should be ambassadors in championing vaccines without dismissing legitimate concerns about them.
