Vaccination is an important part of the fight against COVID-19 virus. A predictor of the proportion of people who will actually take a vaccination is the willingness to vaccinate among the population. Literature shows that vaccination willingness among people with lower socioeconomic status is lower than among other groups. In this contribution we describe to what extent this is also the case in the Netherlands and show how risk perception, trust in the effects and safety of the vaccine, and health literacy may be related to this. Finally, we highlight a number of intervention strategies that can make a positive contribution to vaccination willingness among lower educated groups.

OBJECTIVE: This rapid review aims to identify the types of technologies used by people with dementia and their supporters during the COVID-19 pandemic, and the issues which influenced technology adoption within their usual care routines. METHODS: PubMed, PsychInfo, Scopus, and Cochrane COVID reviews were searched to identify peer-review studies published since 2020. A total of 18 studies were included and synthesised thematically. RESULTS: Of these, most were conducted in the community (n = 15) with people with dementia only (n = 11) and involved qualitative methods (n = 11). The majority (n = 12) focused on digital off-the-shelf and low-cost solutions, such as free video conferencing platforms, to access care, socialise or take part in interventions. Whilst often well-accepted and associated with positive outcomes (such as improved social connectedness), lack of digital literacy or support to use technologies, limited access to appropriate technology, individuals' physical, cognitive, or sensory difficulties, were highlighted and likely to threaten the adoption of these solutions. The quality of the evidence was mixed, neither very robust nor easily generalisable which may be attributed to the challenges of conducting research during the pandemic or the need to rapidly adapt to a new reality. CONCLUSION: While COVID-19 has fast-tracked the adoption of technology, its use is likely to continue beyond the pandemic. We need to ensure this technology can leverage dementia support and care and that people with dementia are enabled and empowered to use it.

Samenvatting Vaccinatie is een belangrijk onderdeel in de bestrijding van het COVID-19-virus. Een voorspeller van het aandeel mensen dat daadwerkelijk een vaccinatie zal nemen is de vaccinatiebereidheid onder de bevolking. Uit buitenlandse literatuur blijkt dat de vaccinatiebereidheid onder mensen met een lagere sociaaleconomische status lager ligt dan onder andere groepen. In deze bijdrage beschrijven we in hoeverre dit ook in Nederland het geval is en laten we zien hoe risicoperceptie, vertrouwen in de werking en veiligheid van het vaccin en gezondheidsvaardigheden hier mogelijk mee samenhangen. Tot slot belichten we een aantal interventiestrategieën die positief aan de vaccinatiebereidheid onder laagopgeleiden kunnen bijdragen.
