Perception de l’introduction de la vaccination contre le PVH en Polynésie française : enquête auprès des mères d’enfants en âge d’être vaccinés

Abstract : Background : Cervical cancer was responsible for 311,365 deaths worldwide in 2018. Meta-analyzes have found a strong association between persistent HPV infection and the development of cervical cancer. However, HPV vaccination isn’t part of the recommendations in french Polynesia. Method : A qualitative study by general inductive analysis, by individual semi-directed interviews, was carried out on the island of Moorea among mothers with girls aged 9 to 14 years. The objective of the study was to study the acceptability of vaccination against HPV in french Polynesia. Results : 4 categories were highlighted to characterize mothers' motivations for HPV vaccination: the concept of acquired protection, a critical approach to knowledge, biographical events solidifying vaccine usefulness and Polynesian cultural factors. These motivations are much more mentioned than the potential obstacles to vaccination found: the price of vaccines, the traumatic gesture of the vaccine, the relationship to sexuality and the questioning of the usefulness of certain vaccines. Conclusion : Mothers' motivation to vaccinate their daughter with the HPV vaccine outweighs their brakes. Despite a significant acceptance of the HPV vaccine, a phenomenon calling into question the vaccine's usefulness is observable. Effective communication on the HPV vaccine will be needed to improve the acceptability of the vaccine in french Polynesia in order to prepare its introduction in the immunization schedule.
