Description

Discrimination, Health, and Vaccine Acceptance among Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese Americans amid COVID-19 Discrimination, Health, and Vaccine Acceptance among Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese Americans amid COVID-19 Subject Population: this study aims to (1) examine the relationships among resource availability, relative risk, preventive behaviors, health care seeking including COVID-19 vaccination intent and uptake, and health status among Chinese, Korean, and Vietnamese Americans, and (2) explore the role of racial/ethnic community organizations and advocacy to mitigate damages associated with the pandemic, including discrimination, and their methods to distribute legitimate information about safety and effectiveness of vaccines, when available. Research Design: A mixed-methods research, including a cross-sectional survey and key informant interviews, will be conducted. Instrument: Guided by the Vulnerable Populations framework, we adapted questions from valid and reliable measures to assess resource availability (e.g., social support), relative risk (e.g., discrimination, distrust in vaccine), preventive behaviors (e.g., face covering), healthcare seeking behaviors including vaccination intent and uptake, and health status in our target populations. Procedure: Aim 1: We will recruit 207 Chinese, 73 Korean, and 145 Vietnamese American adults via our existing community partners and social media for an online survey. Aim 2: We will interview 9-12 (3-4 per ethnic group) pan-Asian organization/ community leaders, religious leaders, political representatives, public safety, and medical personnel through our existing network (e.g., Asian Pacific Community in Action) and snowballing.
