"Hesitancy is not uniform across a population. Analysis of vaccine uptake data from a province or territory may be able to detect subgroups with lower-than-expected coverage rates, given available vaccination services. Targeting these fence-sitters is an important component in addressing hesitancy to improve vaccine acceptance rates. Hesitant subgroups may be linked by a variety of factors, including geography, culture, socioeconomic and/or other factors, especially behavioural factors and determinants categorized by complacency, confidence and/or constraints." - Recognize and Diagnose Underlying Factors in Refusal or Delay in Vaccine Acceptance: The Guide to Tailoring Immunization Programmes TIP (Section 4)
