Paramedics were only given the essentials to deal with influenza vaccination. On the other hand, 67.6 percent of them were actually vaccinated. To reduce the spread of the virus, healthcare providers should work hard to immunize the population around us at any given time. There has been a lot of study into flu, and the general consensus is that it is a type of acute respiratory illness. Influenza is a very contagious and transmissible viral disease that can cause very severe symptoms. This was designed to determine those parents who smoke, how aware they are about the flu symptoms, and how they deal with them. This survey is a part of a study that was conducted by us of healthy male paramedics. When they were given an online questionnaire that included eight questions, all the participants found the questions to be very straightforward. As a result of this survey, we will know exactly what the Saudi parents really know about disease prevention and treatments. The purpose of the study is to find out if the paramedics of Saudi Hospitals would like to be vaccinated against seasonal influenza. The paper uses the word "seriously" to talk about the importance of vaccination (which is an interesting word choice). This research was conducted on a sample of 222 healthy male paramedics assessed by the use of an online questionnaire, along with a personal rating of beliefs regarding influenza vaccination and the status of self-reported vaccination. The paper also identifies the reasons why the people in question are not being vaccinated and the outcomes. By conducting a percentage analysis by reviewing the questionnaire results, it was found that the paramedics were very unaware of the importance of and effectiveness of the Hepatitis B Vaccination. According to what the paramedics found, the vaccine wasn't available in the hospitals, so they couldn't administer it, either.
