Évaluation du ressenti et des connaissances parentales sur les nouvelles recommandations vaccinales d’une population pédiatrique landaise hospitalière

Abstract : Research problem: some vaccination coverage remains insufficient leading to the outbreak and return of preventable illnesses such as measles, which continues to spread and cause deaths such as France amongst other places. The increasing hesitation towards vaccination is impacting all countries at this stage. In respect to the difficulties confronted with in an attempt to meet the vaccination coverage targets set in its global action plan for vaccination, the World Health Organization (WHO) has acknowledged “the reticence towards vaccination as a global issue both complex in nature and of rapid evolution requiring consistent monitoring”. To counteract this issue, France has imposed on all children born on and after 1st January 2018, a new vaccination agenda containing 11 vaccines. The main objective of this research is to gauge the parental reaction in relation to the new vaccine recommendations. Materials and methodology used: prospective, qualitative and multicentric epidemiological research at the healthcare facilities of Dax and of Mont de Marsan du GHT 40 based on a self-administered survey intended for the parents of children born from 1st January 2018 at the paediatric emergency rooms, during a fixed time period (from 9th March 2020 until 30th June 2020). Results: we collected 105 surveys. The results demonstrate that from 65% of the parents informed in relation to 2018’s new vaccination recommendations, 74% amongst them were in favour of a potential vaccination. 49% of our community consider that mandatory vaccination has been influenced by pharmaceutical laboratories and 48.5% of our community deem that this fact has given effect to an increased number of vaccinations amongst their children than previously required. 61% of the asked parents are in favour of vaccinations and 21% are against them. 21% consider vaccinations dangerous however 94% deem them efficient and effective. This information originates mainly from a medical source (48.5%) followed by family input and the internet. 79% deem not being sufficiently informed about the vaccine-related implications and 67% consider not being sufficiently informed on the secondary effects of vaccination. 88% of the children’s immunisation records were up-to-date with their vaccinations. Conclusion: the parental feeling regarding the updated vaccination recommendations of 2018 has become increasingly favourable. It remains of utmost importance to deliver answers and insights to the parental enquiries in regard to potential vaccination of their respective children. This proactive clarification mechanism supports an increased acceptance of the vaccination concept.
