Abstract

Nuances in Inoculation: Protecting Positive Attitudes toward the HPV Vaccine & the Practice of Vaccinating Children

This study examined the use of two different inoculation messages in conferring resistance to persuasive messages attacking vaccinations. A three-phase experiment involving 212 participants was conducted to determine if young women who held positive attitudes toward the HPV vaccine/practice of vaccinating children could be inoculated against messages attacking the HPV vaccine/ practice of vaccinating children.
