Factors Associated With Chinese Adults’ Vaccine Acceptance

Turning COVID-19 vaccines into vaccinations is a critical step to ending the COVID-19 pandemic. It is thus imperative to understand the disparities in COVID-19 vaccine acceptance and identify approaches to improve vaccination rates. The aim of this study was to add to this understanding. This survey study received institutional review board clearance from Johns Hopkins University as well as approval by the National School of Development at Peking University where the data collection took place. The data were collected in January 2021, by which time the nationwide distribution of COVID-19 vaccines had just begun in China. A large-scale, nationally representative, random sample of 14 378 Chinese adults were invited to participate in this internet-based survey. The survey was conducted following the guidelines by the American Association for Public Opinion Research (AAPOR). Participants consented before responding to the questionnaire, responded anonymously, and could terminate their participation at any point (eMethods 1 in the Supplement).
