Abstract

Adolescents rated hypothetical human immunodeficiency virus vaccines described as 90% and 50% efficacious and discussed how immunization might influence behavior of their peers. The low-efficacy vaccine was largely unacceptable and most believed immunization with the high-efficacy vaccine would cause increased risk behaviors. Immunization programs will need to address vaccine acceptability issues and behavioral responses to immunization. Copyright (C) 1999 Society for Adolescent Medicine.
