The COVID-19 pandemic has wreaked havoc on the planet and killed millions of people. Health care workers and radiology technicians who come into direct contact with COVID-19 patients have indeed been the most affected by the virus. Since the pandemic began, the COVID-19 cases among health care workers have surged and quadrupled. COVID-19 vaccine mandate is the need of the time. Mandates have a history and are in effect for other diseases such as smallpox, measles, or mumps. But since the vaccines have come out for COVID-19, there is a public impetus to condemn these vaccines, based on the false assumption that the Covid-19 vaccines are not safe. One primary reason the COVID-19 vaccines are being viewed with skepticism is that they came out in short span and the fact that they have not been subjected to animal trials or been thoroughly tested in populations large enough to detect most side effects. The present study is survey based and designed to estimate the pro-vaccine attitudes among health care and radiology students regarding vaccine safety. This study is not only an important resource for patients and public education but holds significance for disproving any myths surrounding the vaccine.
