Barriers and facilitators to vaccination uptake against COVID-19, influenza, and pneumococcal pneumonia in immunosuppressed adults with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases: A qualitative interview study during the COVID-19 pandemic

Objects: To identify barriers and facilitators to COVID-19, influenza, and pneumococcal vaccine uptake in immunosuppressed adults with immune-mediated inflammatory diseases. In NVivo, coded by a second coder, and mapped to the SAGE vaccine hesitancy matrix, data were analyzed thematically. Key vaccines' key factors, according to all vaccines, were elevated risk of infection and optimism that vaccination is beneficial. The belief that vaccination could cause the IMID flare and active IMID were two of the key barriers to all vaccinations, as well as active IMID. Media attention, high incidence, mass-vaccination program with visible results, social responsibility, and healthcare professionals u2019 confirmation of the new vaccinesu2019 suitability for their IMID were among the key facilitators specific to COVID-19 vaccines. As important vaccination-eligibility requirements, targeting vaccination benefits and safety for IMID-patients in clinical practice, direct invitation, and public-health messages emphasizing immunosuppression as a primary vaccination-eligibility standard could improve uptake, although further study should be conducted.
