Vaccination Decision Making

Vaccination Decision Making

Vaccine decision making is complex and multi-dimensional. It is influenced by perceptions of risks and factors such as attitudes, social norms, culture, structural barriers and habit. To improve vaccine acceptance and uptake, it is necessary to appreciate the factors that influence vaccine decisions to effectively approach those who may be hesitant towards vaccination.
