Abstract

This study aims at investigating gender differences in accepting Covid-19 vaccination shot. Data were collected through a self-administered survey participated by adults who have never been vaccinated. We used Structural Equation Model analysis to examine the relationships between variables in the research model with the assistance of SmartPLS software to simplify the calculations. Findings reveal that men are less threatened by Covid-19 risks and consequently less willing to be vaccinated compared with women. The present study also found a mediating role of attitude toward vaccination. Theoretical and practical contributions of the study were discussed.
