Keywords: Covid-19 vaccination Refusal, Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA), Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA), Topic Modelling, Twitter


COVID -19 vaccination is a program provided by the Indonesian government to minimize the spread of the virus. The COVID-19 vaccination program in Indonesia goes hand in hand with issues that are circulating, causing controversy and rejection of vaccination on social media, especially Twitter. There are many factors that influence vaccine rejection on Twitter, to summarize frequently discussed topics and find out hidden topics, this study uses the Latent Dirichlet Allocation (LDA) and Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) methods from 1797 Twitter scrapping data. Both models require a set of words that have been converted into a matrix, so before conducting LDA topic modeling, the dataset will undergo a bag of word (BOW) calculation. Meanwhile, in LSA topic modeling, the existing dataset will undergo word weighting of frequently occurring words using Term Frequency - Inverse Document Frequency (TF-IDF). This study was conducted to find and summarize hidden information in the form of frequently discussed topics, thus understanding public opinions related to the COVID -19 vaccination refusal case. LDA and LSA methods will display topics based on the probability and mathematical calculations of word occurrences in each topic in the document. The topics that appear will be further analyzed through coherence score by applying a limit of 20 topics to display the best value. Further modeling experiments are carried out to display topics through LDA and LSA models, this study takes 6 topics with the highest coherence values including the right of individuals to choose whether to be vaccinated or not (0.484607), the Ribka Tjiptaning controversy (0.473368), rejection of the COVID-19 vaccine by groups represented by public figures (0.463631), punishment for non-compliance in the form of fines (0.324924), and halal certification (0.312521).
