DescriptionVaccines: beliefs, mistrust, drivers of take-up
Three years in to the Covid pandemic, we have witnessed the largest vaccination drive in history. But even as vaccination rates were lauded in the early stages, and enabled the reopening of economies and communities around the world, we know there were pockets of deep mistrust and resistance to receiving Covid vaccinations. Drawing on four research projects undertaken in the midst of the pandemic, we investigate the attitudes, ideas and beliefs of people about the Covid-19 vaccine across seven countries to better understand the root causes of vaccine mistrust and hesitancy. Our work presents multidisciplinary insights to inform future public health policy and outreach, drawing on anthropology, communications, political science, and sociology; and diverse methods from large-survey statistics to focus groups and in-depth interviews to understand lived experiences.
