Abstract

Objective: To assess the acceptance and intention to receive the Covid-19 vaccine and the associated factors if it is offered to students, as they are directly exposed to the disease during the various internships.

Methods: This is a cross-sectional descriptive study, carried out within the Higher Institute of Medical Techniques in Lubumbashi from September 4 to 5, 2020. The sample was non-random for convenience, and included 439 students who gave their consent to participate in the survey. The main result was the students’ willingness to accept a future vaccine against covid-19. Stepwise logistic regression was used to identify predictors of willingness to be vaccinated against Covid-19.
