Around 832 adolescent smokers were eligible for this study. Results: Among 832 adolescent smokers in this study, about 49.64% of them ever used e-cigarettes. The factors significantly associated with the use of e-cigarettes were money pocket and the use of other forms of smoked tobacco. However, other independent variables, such as age, gender, teachers smoking during school hours, and parent smoking, were not significantly associated with using e-cigarettes. Conclusion: The factors associated with e-cigarette use were related to the students’ socioeconomic status. The roles of parents and teachers need to be addressed to reduce the harmfulness of using e-cigarettes.

      Abstract: Background: Health workers and public servants as the front line in service are prioritized to get the COVID-19 vaccination. The phenomenon of side effects is a major issue in administering the vaccination. Objective: The research aimed to identify Adverse Events Following Immunization (AEFIs) and their correlation with comorbidities in health workers and public servants in Indonesia. Methods: A cross-sectional study design was used in this study among 262 participants selected using purposive sampling. Data were collected using Google Form. Univariate analysis and Chi-Square were used for data analysis. Results: Of all participants, 74.8% were not comorbid, and 25.2% were comorbid. The incidence of AEFI was 56.9%, relatively occurring after the vaccination I, II, and I and II. AEFI started 40.1% within 24 hours post-vaccination with a 48.7% symptom duration within 1-24 hours. AEFI reactions 42.3% are other reactions in the form of allergic reactions, drowsiness, and increased appetite. The Chi-Square test showed a p-value of 0.894, indicating that both comorbid and non-comorbid patients had the same risk of developing AEFI. Conclusion: Comorbid or non-comorbid is safe to get COVID-19 vaccination. Supervisors reporting on AEFI is important to anticipate the severity condition. Health protocols must be implemented continually.

Objective: This research aimed to analyze the relationship between beliefs on health and family support toward the participation of the elderly in Posyandu Lansia. Methods: This correlational research was performed using a cross-sectional approach on 30 elderly selected purposively. The Health Belief Model (HBM) was used as a framework in this study. Data were collected using validated questionnaires and analyzed using univariate statistics, Chi-square, and logistic regression. Results: The results indicated the presence of a correlation between health beliefs, especially perceived vulnerability (p = 0.048) and perceived benefits (p = 0.030), and family support in the elderly’s participation in Posyandu Lansia. Conclusion: It is essential for the public health centers to monitor and approach the families of elderlies who rarely attend Posyandu Lansia to improve their health and quality of life.

Results: The majority of the respondents were female (65%) and 15-59 years old. The Chi-square analysis found education, knowledge, and attitude were significant variables. After adjusting to the multi-logistic regression, the poor attitude and low cost of family food consumption were associated with poor food safety behavior (p <0.05). Conclusion: The most significant factors related to poor food safety behavior are the low cost of family food consumption and low attitude. The program must be appropriately arranged to prevent poor food safety behavior in the households.
