Abstract/Description

Despite widespread availability of the influenza vaccine, current uptake of the vaccine remains suboptimal. Perceptions influence parents in their acceptance and uptake of the vaccination of their children. This systematic review will investigate the positive and negative perceptions associated with vaccination uptake and also use the Health Belief Model to further understand the influence of these perceptions. By looking at the past literature, this paper will make a definitive stance to raise the acceptance and uptake of the influenza vaccination.
