vaccination was defined in two ways. First, it was viewed as an injection for preventing diseases, and second, it was considered as treatment enhancement procedure. It has been argued that the way a people perceive a particular phenomenon will determine their attitude towards it. Hence, the perceived meanings of immunization influenced receptivity to vaccination, as those who view it as disease prevention technique used it for that purpose, and those who considered it as treatment enhancement procedure behave as such.
