    "description": "<p><strong><em>Background: </em></strong><em>Despite the outstanding achievements in public health, especially the vaccinations system. An emerging phenomenon called vaccine hesitancy tends to be a significant obstacle that hinders the continuity of the herd immunity that all scientists with governments have built in the last decades. </em></p>\n\n<p><strong><em>Objectives: </em></strong><em>This study aimed to evaluate the level of parental vaccination hesitancy (PVH) among Saudi mothers and to identify the factors that may impact their confidence to vaccinate their children. </em></p>\n\n<p><strong><em>Methods: </em></strong><em>A cross-sectional study was conducted on Saudi mothers attending primary healthcare centers in Taif city, Saudi Arabia</em><em>. Data were collected through a valid questionnaire designed by the SAGE (Strategic Advisory Group of Experts on Immunization) in June 2022.</em></p>\n\n<p><strong><em>Results: </em></strong><em>A total of 224 mothers were included. The majority were aged 24 to 29 years old (28.1%). Around 63% completed their bachelor&rsquo;s degree, and about 73% were working females. They frequently get their vaccine information from hospitals (35.7%) and social media platforms (35.7%).</em><em> Upon evaluating PVH-associated factors, graduate and working mothers were less hesitant toward vaccination than non-graduate mothers (p=0.025, 0.047, respectively). Rural area women were more confident about vaccinating their children (p=0.001).&nbsp; Mothers who received vaccination awareness from hospitals were more hesitant to vaccinate their children (p=0.001).</em></p>\n\n<p><strong><em>Conclusion: </em></strong><em>A </em><em>significant proportion of Saudi mothers experience PVH. This hesitancy is lower among working mothers with a high level of education who live in rural areas. Mothers who get information from healthcare providers also tend to be less confident about vaccinations. Awareness</em><em> about the safety and efficacy of childhood vaccinations should be raised among the Saudi community to limit preventable diseases.</em></p>\n\n<p><strong><em>Keywords: </em></strong><em>Parental vaccination hesitancy, Immunization, Saudi mothers, Vaccine.</em></p>",
