Perception de l’obligation vaccinale par les patients du Gapençais consultant en médecine générale

Abstract : In France a relative vaccines distrust has been reported for a few years. The French government made on January 2018 an extension of mandatory vaccines (from 3 to 11) for infants under 24 months old. We aimed to evaluate how this new bill was perceived by the general population in Gap and if it modified their trust in vaccines perception. An anonymous paper questionnaire was freely available in 7 physicians offices waiting rooms in Gap and around between March and May 2019. 453 questionnaires were analyzed. Age was 45.5±16 years; there was a majority of female (78.4%) and parents (85.4%). On a 0-100 scale, the auto-evaluated confidence level in the vaccines was 75[50-90] ; it was lower for parents of children aged 3 or less (60[40-85] vs 80[50-90], p<0.001). 87.2% were aware of the extension of mandatory vaccines; 60.3% thought it was a good public heath policy but only 26.9% felt that the measure had been sufficiently explained. 24% completely agreed that the mandatory vaccination policy (MVP) was an individual freedoms restriction. 49.4% believed that the MVP was the result of the pharmaceutical firms lobbying onto the French government. 26% declared that the MVP has changed their position regarding vaccines; among this minority 78% declared that their position had shifted towards « less confidence ». These were younger than those who had shifted their perception towards « more confidence » (42.2±13 vs 51.8±16 years p=0.0036) and they had a lower median confidence in vaccines (50[25-70] vs 85[70-95], p<0.0001).
