A Health Education of the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine Systemic Reactions at University of Muhammadiyah Pekajangan Pekalongan
Keywords:Health Education; Knowledge Enhancement; COVID-19
This community service was carried out due to the skyrocketing cases of Covid-19 at the time, yet people kept reluctant to get vaccinated because of their insufficient understanding and doubt toward the vaccine. Hence, to alleviate this condition, health education about the systemic reactions of Covid-19 vaccine and how to handle them was essentially needed. The purpose of this activity was to assess the level of pre and post knowledge on the Covid-19 vaccine’s Moderna. The activities started by doing preparation, and followed by delivering the health education and processing the collected data from the pretest and post-test as an evaluation. The data were analyzed by using a paired sample T-test. The results showed that before the health education, the average value of knowledge was 70.87 and increased to 95.70 after the activity with a p-value of 0.001. Thus, it is expected that the participants of this community service can socialize the knowledge they have gotten to the surrounding community so that people at large can take part in preventing wider transmission of Covid-19. To say the least, it can be concluded that this health education could increase people’s knowledge about various systemic reactions of the Moderna Covid-19 vaccine and methods in overcoming the follow-up reactions.
