Title: Moral foundations and vaccination against Covid-19

Abstract: The moral dimensions of liberty, purity, authority, and possibly harm have been found to correlate with vaccination hesitancy measured as parents’ and caregivers’ attitudes and intentions towards vaccination against child’s diseases. The present study investigates the relationship between moral dimensions and the intention/decision to vaccinate against Covid-19 in adults, rather than specifically parents. The decision to vaccinate against Covid-19 concerns the deciders themselves rather than another person – their wards. German adults recruited from social media groups with vaccination, health, and Covid related topics (such assupporting or rejecting vaccination in general or against Covid-19 specifically) will be investigated. Participants are asked to complete an online survey using the moral foundations questionnaire (J. Graham et al., 2011), general vaccination hestitancy (Rossen et al., 2019), attitudes towards vaccination against Covid-19, and political orientation on a left-right spectrum as well as political party association. Bayesian multiple linear and multinomial logistic regressions as well as data-driven clustering methods will be used to model groups of attitudes and their relationship to the endorsement of moral domains.
