Public health nursing plays a vital role in promoting health and prevention of various diseases among the population. Public health nurses must support, plan, and develop systems and programs that prevent health problems and access quality health care (Guo et al., 2020). Moreover, their goal is to prevent an illness, disability, or injury, promote and maintain the population’s health. Public health data is used to evaluate mass inoculation programs, determining the appropriate public health interventions and the targeted population.
