The COVID-19 pandemic highlighted the growing difficulties with encouraging populations to get vaccinated. Low vaccination rates are often attributed to vaccine hesitancy. However, the reasons why individuals may not get vaccinated are multiple and varied, based on a variety of social, economic, political, psychological, and even logistical factors.
Public health experts, leaders, and governments must understand the impediments to vaccine uptake in order to develop strategies that go beyond conventional interventions to address low vaccination rates.
In collaboration with the Intellectual Forum, Jesus College, Cambridge, the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health, and the University of Sydney, the Global Health Security Network is pleased to release a policy report authored by Dr Kerrie Wiley and Professor Julie Leask that examines the challenges and strategies to increase vaccine uptake.
Professor Michelle Williams, Dean of the Harvard TH Chan School of Public Health will officially launch the report and discuss its implications for public health professionals and the wider community.
