The past couple of years have caused so much uncertainty and grief amidst the global pandemic. The goal of this study is to explore the attitudes behind COVID-19 vaccination to address the cause for vaccine disparities and help minimize health disparities in the United States. The study considers two multivariable regressions in SPSS of the social factors on vaccination status and vaccine confidence. This model studies the relationship between one’s ethnicity, race, education level, education specialization, household income, political ideology, and media source on vaccine confidence and vaccination status on an East Texas college campus. A campus-wide survey was conducted to explore the attitudes behind the COVID-19 vaccine. These survey questions provide reasoning from different demographic backgrounds, political ideologies, socioeconomic levels, etc. The survey results show that news sources, political ideology, and major have great effects on vaccination trust/hesitancy.
