Abstract

This study elicited the information needs, motivations, and behavioral skills related to human papillomavirus vaccine decision-making among young adult women. Interviews were conducted with college women, aged 18–26 years, and stratified by recently vaccinated (N = 25) and unvaccinated (N = 25). Comparative thematic analysis using the Information, Motivation, and Behavioral Skills Model was conducted. Healthcare providers were identified as the most trusted sources for information. While unvaccinated women did not have experience receiving the vaccine, they reported the same procedural knowledge for vaccination. These findings suggest that young adult women have the information and procedural knowledge for human papillomavirus vaccination, but motivations may influence their decision-making.
