Abstract

Several vaccines have been approved against COVID-19 infectious disease and are being given to populations in different regions of the world. But, the number of people getting vaccines are quite less than the targeted population for whom the vaccines are being kept for immunization purpose. Therefore, the study aimed to investigate the attitude and perceived risk towards COVID-19 vaccination decision in Bangladesh. An exploratory population-based survey was conducted among 186 general individuals chosen purposively from the metropolitan area of Dhaka. The survey was conducted using a structured and self-administered questionnaire. Multiple linear regression technique was performed to determine the variables predicting immunization decision. The findings reflect a significant positive attitude along with insignificant risk-taking behaviour towards COVID-19 immunization decision among the general population in Bangladesh.
