Background: In the COVID-19 pandemic, vaccination was identified as being of significant importance to prevent virus spread and to move towards re-introducing normality in everyday life. As the influenza season approached in autumn 2020, the importance of the influenza vaccine was highlighted as a mitigation strategy to limit the consequences and risk of co-infection with the influenza virus and COVID-19. The aim of the study was to evaluate the degree of hesitancy of pharmacists and pharmacy students towards influenza and COVID-19 vaccines in autumn 2020.

The COVID-19 pandemic, which was globally declared during the first quarter of the year 2020, led to the transition of teaching activities from the traditional classroom setting to online platforms. This study evaluated preparedness and perception towards online learning and its impact among pharmacy academics and students by using two self-administered questionnaires. Fifteen academics and 60 students answered the questionnaire. Participants had the required technology for online learning (academics n = 14, 93%;students n=56, 93%) and believed that the transition to online learning was easy (academics n=12, 80%;students n=41, 68%). Most participants (academics n=12, 80%;students n=46, 77%) stated that online learning allowed more flexibility even though they preferred classroom-based approach. A minority of students stated that the shift to online learning during the pandemic made them feel alone (n=11, 18%), anxious (n=7, 12%) and depressed (n=9, 15%). Given the option, participants would prefer a hybrid learning approach, whereby some teaching activities are switched to online platforms.
