Introduction: Today, despite the nationwide vaccination of the society to prevent the epidemic of the Covid-19 virus, some people refuse to inject the Covid-19 vaccine as the main self-care behavior, which can have specific reasons.
Aim: The present study was conducted with the aim of investigating the role of personality and demographic characteristics in the injection of the covid-19 vaccine as a measure to prevent the spread of the corona virus in Mashhad.
Method: The method of this research was descriptive-correlation. The statistical population consisted of the people of Mashhad in the year 2022, of which 517 people (62.1% vaccinated and 37.9% unvaccinated) were selected in an accessible and voluntary manner and completed the Brief HEXACO Personality Questionnaire (2013) and Demographic Characteristics Questionnaire in Person. The collected data were analyzed by Yeoman-Whitney test in SPSS software version 26.
Results: The results showed that there is no significant difference between vaccination and non-vaccination in the five personality components of Emotionality (P=0.19), Extroversion (P=0.44), Agreeableness (P=0.88), Conscientiousness (P=0.86) and Openness to Experience (P=0.20). However, there was a significant difference between the vaccinated and non-vaccinated groups in terms of the personality component of Honesty-humility (P=0.03) and the demographic characteristics of gender (P=0.002), age (P=0.001), level of education (P=0.001), and employment status (P=0.001).
Conclusion: The personality trait of honesty-humility and the demographic characteristics of gender, age, level of education and employment status play a role in the matter of injecting the Covid-19 vaccine as the main self-care behavior. These results can be used to promote and encourage vaccination in future crises.
