Exploring the global, practical tools that are available to assess vaccine hesitancy.
HOW YOU CAN USE THIS MATERIAL:
Assess and measure the specific vaccine hesitancy issues within your country and then determine appropriate strategies to address them.
Given the complexity of vaccine hesitancy, and how context specific it is, varying across time, place and vaccine, there is no silver bullet, or single intervention to addressing vaccine hesitancy. Identified strategies should be carefully tailored according to the target population, their reasons for hesitancy, and the specific context. It is key to identify the susceptible populations, explore the underlying reasons for non-vaccination, and to address those reasons. The aim of this catalog is to provide a compilation of practical tools available for LNCT countries to assess and address vaccine hesitancy within their country, and to identify any gaps in available resources. The tools cover a range of topics including engaging communities, addressing myths and misconceptions, answering parents’ questions about vaccines, determining barriers to vaccination, and much more.
