Acceptance Patterns and Decision-Making for Human Papillomavirus Vaccination Among Parents in Vietnam: An In-Depth Qualitative Study Post-Vaccination

This article, published in BMC Public Health, presents findings from qualitative research on parents’ rationales for vaccinating or not vaccinating their daughters and their decision-making process in the context of a human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccination demonstration project in Vietnam. The authors designed a descriptive qualitative study of HPV vaccine acceptability among parents of girls eligible for vaccination in four districts of two provinces in Vietnam, and they implemented the study after each of two years of vaccinations was completed. Focus group discussions and in-depth interviews with parents of girls vaccinated revealed that they were generally very supportive of immunization for disease prevention and of vaccinating girls against HPV.
