Dialogue on Vaccination Incentives and Social Expectations of Brgy. Taocanga

Mayor Jon Marco M. Dayanghirang with Dr. Abelardo C. Bantayan and Pastors agreed to provide information and shaping social expectations and incentives could both significantly increase vaccine uptake in Barangay Taocanga. To understand how mass vaccination campaigns can overcome individuals’ hesitancy, Mayor Jon Marco M. Dayanghirang leverage socio scientific theoretical frameworks that highlight how information and collective action problems can inhibit individually and socially optimal behaviors. The information transmission problem, whereby individuals lack exposure to credible information about the private costs and benefits of vaccination, may decrease vaccine willingness among risk-averse and uninformed individuals. Indeed, emerging COVID-19 research predominantly in the upper barangays of the Municipality of Manay has suggested that vaccine willingness is responsive to both expert information and misinformation, although corrective messaging regarding vaccines for other diseases has produced less sanguine effects. It is thus important to establish whether and what type of information about COVID-19 vaccines can increase vaccine acceptance.
