Background: COVID-19 vaccination could be a promising approach in controlling the pandemic, but its success strongly relies on the acceptance of vaccines among various populations including young adults who are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 due to their active lifestyle and perception of invulnerability. Vaccine acceptance decisions can be influenced by multiple factors and people may weigh these factors differently in their decision making. The current study aims to explore COVID-19 vaccine acceptance among college students in South Carolina and examine how they weigh these factors according to their levels of COVID-19 vaccine acceptance (i.e., acceptance, hesitance, refusal). Methods: Online survey data were collected from 1062 college students in South Carolina between September and October 2020. Multivariate analysis of covariance was used to compare perceived importance of 12 factors affecting levels of vaccine acceptance, controlling for key demographic variables. Results: About 60.6% of the college students reported they would definitely or likely take COVID-19 vaccine when available.
