To suppress the Covid-19 pandemic, a series of preventive measures, both promotive and interventive, were taken. From small children to the elderly, socialization continues to be carried out. However, there are many risk factors for the elderly group, namely comorbid and elderly age. Then how about individuals living with the elderly? This research looks at the Covid-19 preventive behavior in individuals living with the elderly through the lens of the Health Belief Model (HBM) and individual perceptions of the susceptibility of the elderly to Covid-19 infection. Of the 305 research participants, the results show that the Health Belief Model conceptual model and individual perceptions of the elderly's vulnerability to Covid-19infection can explain almost 25% (R2 = 0.247) of the variance of Covid-19 prevention behavior. Two variables were found to be significant in predicting Covid-19 prevention behavior: perceived benefits and cues to action. Therefore, if the individual knows that carrying out Covid-19 preventive behavior has many advantages and is awakened with information related to Covid-19 prevention, he will be more inclined to carry out Covid-19 preventive behavior.
