ABSTRACT

The causative agent of the disease known called COVID 19 is the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus-2 (SARS-CoV-2). The emergence of novel coronavirus led to the creation of vaccines as the primary preventative measures toward the spread of the pandemic causing virus. However, the fast development of vaccines led the people towards doubt which disrupted the confidence of the people leading towards cognitive dissonance that hindered the willingness of the people to receive COVID-19 vaccines. This study aimed to determine the level of cognitive dissonance and confidence in relation to specific variables that affected their views on COVID-19 vaccines. Hence, descriptive-correlational research design was used to determine the connection between variables such as cognitive dissonance and confidence towards the willingness of the residents to receive COVID-19 vaccines. The participants of the study were randomly selected using the convenience sampling technique. An online form of several modified survey questionnaire focused on Knowledge and Attitude studies were used as a form of survey instrument. Thereafter, the frequency distribution table, logistic regression, chi-square test, and the p-values were used to analyze and provide statistical interpretation of the data. The findings proved that the age and civil status of the respondents have significant relationship to the confidence of the respondents towards the COVID-19 vaccines. Moreover, the alternative hypothesis of the study was rejected, concluding that willingness is the driving mechanism that provides correlation to both developments of confidence and cognitive dissonance.

Keywords: Cognitive Dissonance, Confidence, Willingness, COVID-19, Vaccines.
