ABSTRACT

With the COVID-19 pandemic continuously causing a global health crisis, the need for vaccination serves as the most viable solution to eradicate the disease. The parents’decision and willingness to subject their children to vaccination is an arising challenge due to several factors and experiences such as the Dengvaxia controversy. Hence, the researchers aim to correlate the respondents’ knowledge and perception of the Dengvaxia controversy and the need for COVID-19 vaccination to their confidence level in the COVID-19 vaccination. The researchers utilized descriptive correlational design to determine the relationship between the variables present in the study. The data obtained through survey questionnaires of both open and close-ended was answered by the Filipino parents of children 12 years old and below in the selected barangays of General Trias, Cavite, chosen through systematic sampling technique. The Pearson r correlation coefficient of 0.550* revealed that the perception of parents regarding the Dengvaxia controversy has a significant and moderately strong correlation to their confidence level on COVID-19 vaccination. On the other hand, there is a significant yet very weak correlation between the knowledge of the parents regarding the need for COVID-19 vaccination (0.197**) and Dengvaxia controversy (0.129**) to their confidence level on COVID-19 vaccination of their children. Incontrast to these, with a Pearson r correlation coefficient of 0.6, no significant relationship was found between the parents’ perception of COVID-19 vaccination and their confidence level. From the findings obtained, it can be concluded that the respondents are still skeptical, and their confidence level when it comes to COVID-19 vaccination is low. Thus, the inconsistency in the parents’ confidence level can be resolved through the dissemination of the right information regarding COVID-19 vaccines to the masses. With its emphasis on their safety and efficacy especially to those gravely affected by the Dengvaxia controversy.
