Abstract

The study aimed to reveal the level of motives behind the hesitation of a segment of Palestinian university students regarding the anti-Coronavirus (Covid-19) vaccine, and to reveal the nature of the differences in the motives of a segment of Palestinian university students’ hesitating to receive the vaccine against the Corona Virus (Covid-19) which are attributed to the variables of gender, place of residence, and educational level. The study sample consisted of (714) male and female students from Palestinian universities who were randomly selected. The study used a  motivation scale. The results of the study concluded that the level of motives for the frequency of a segment of Palestinian university students to receive the anti-Coronavirus vaccination was moderate, and the order of motives was as follows: psychological motives (67.94%), extrinsic motives (67.21%), intrinsic motives (59.51%) and physiological motives (58.52). The results also found that there were no statistically significant differences at the level (0.05) in the motives for the hesitation of a segment of Palestinian university students to receive the Corona Virus (Covid-19) vaccine due to the residency variable, and there are statistically significant differences at the level (0.05). ) in the motives of a segment of Palestinian university students’ reluctance to receive the Corona Virus (Covid-19) vaccine due to the gender variable in favour of males, and attributed to the educational level variable, between intermediate diploma and doctorate and in favour of doctoral degree holders, and between bachelor’s and master’s degrees and in favour of bachelor’s holders, and between master’s degrees and doctoral degree holders, in favor of doctoral degree holders. Finally,  one of the most important recommendations of the study is the preparation of guidance and awareness programs that take into account individual differences between students, and that aim to educate students to receive the anti-Corona virus (Covid-19)vaccine, in addition to conducting more research and studies on other samples, such as samples of university students from other countries, to compare them with the Palestinian reality and to benefit from the constructive development experiences in those universities.
