In light of the data analysis, authors conclude that «[a]ll mothers interviewed in this study wanted the best protection for their child’s health, and it is essential to understand why this means accepting vaccination for some and refusing or delaying vaccination for others. In between vaccine-favorable and vaccine-unfavorable mothers, vaccine-hesitant mothers formed a heterogeneous group with different levels of indecision and concerns about vaccination. Results of our study have illustrated that, more than a rational “risk versus benefit” analysis, mothers’ decisions encompassed different factors such as social norms, past experiences, emotions, values, social network influences, and other day-to-day concerns about their child’s health and well-being.» (p. 22)

Vaccine, vol. 30, no 41, p. 5921-5927.
Intentions : «The aims of the present study were (1) to evaluate the knowledge, attitudes and beliefs of pregnant women regarding RVGE [gastroenteritis due to rotavirus] and its prevention by vaccination; (2) to determine maternal intention regarding rotavirus vaccination; and (3) to identify the factors associated with this intention. Finally, we tried to establish the key messages to include in the promotion of this new vaccine program.» (p. 5922)
Échantillon/Matériau : L’étude est basée sur la participation de 343 mères, recrutées «at the Sherbrooke University Hospital Center in the province of Quebec.» (p. 5922)

«Our results showed that despite the new recommendations on rotavirus vaccination, few participants knew about the vaccines. Moreover, those who had already heard about the rotavirus vaccine were less likely to have the intention of vaccinating their children when compared with people who had not heard about it, and this negative correlation was linked to the media.» (p. 5925) «According to our results the majority of respondents held positive beliefs and attitudes toward rotavirus vaccine, with a vaccination intention rate of nearly 75%. In addition to classical information about safety and efficacy of the vaccine, several key messages should be integrated in the information given to the population to improve the success of this new vaccination program: (1) the fact that RVGE is a mandatory infection for every child before the age of 5 years; (2) the vaccine is reimbursed and included in the provincial vaccination program; and (3) the vaccine protects against the worst forms of GE. Finally, the delivery of evidence-based information about rotaviral infection and its prevention by vaccination should be made by healthcare practitioners involved with vaccination, as this appears to be the most important incentive to maternal vaccination intention.» (p. 5926)
