The goal of our nudge is to increase HPV-vaccination rates indirectly by raising the willingness to participate in a voluntary youth examination (J1).
To ensure this goal, we want to introduce an email system, to inform and remind people of the existence of the J1-examination, to explain the benefits of participating, and to facilitate arrangements of an appointment for the examination.
This email should be sent out automatically to parents of 12-year old juveniles.
Vaccinations are one of the most important means in the prevention of transmittable diseases. They aim to enhance the body’s natural immune response to pathogens by activating and teaching the immune system. A sufficient rate of vaccinated individuals in a population is crucial for the long-term success of preventing diseases.
