Development

The 7C vaccination readiness scale is an extended version of the 5C scale. For more information about the scale development and earlier versions, please click here.

Childhood Vaccination Readiness

Most vaccinations take place in the early childhood and parents decide whether their children get vaccinated. The decision to vaccinate oneself or someone else is qualitatively different. Thus, we adapted the 7C of vaccination readiness scale to assess parents' readiness to vaccinate own minor children. For more information about the development, please click here.

Scoring Information

All items should be scored so that high values indicate high vaccination readiness. Therefore, the following items should be recoded for data analysis as following:

# Complacency
df$cmpcy_01 <- recode(df$cmpcy_01, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)
df$cmpcy_02 <- recode(df$cmpcy_02, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)

# Constraints
df$const_03 <- recode(df$const_03, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)

# Calcualation
df$calc_01 <- recode(df$calc_01, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)
df$calc_02 <- recode(df$calc_02, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)
df$calc_03 <- recode(df$calc_03, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)

# Conspiracy
df$consp_01 <- recode(df$consp_01, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)
df$consp_02 <- recode(df$consp_02, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)
df$consp_03 <- recode(df$consp_03, '1' = 7, '2' = 6,'3' = 5, '4'= 4, '5'= 3, '6' = 2, '7' = 1)
