Covid-19 Vaccine Hesitancy among Palestinians
Al-Quds University, Deanship of Scientific Research
Background: In the context of COVID-19 global pandemic, vaccines are one of the effective measures to control the effects of the virus. Vaccine Hesitancy is one of the underlying issues facing vaccinations and refers to “a delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines despite availability.” It can stem from many factors such as marginalization and social exclusion, negative experiences at health services, or misinformation about vaccines circulated on unregulated social media platforms. This issue is complex and depends on economic and socio-cultural factors and shapes our health and clinical situation and should thus be further studied and examined.
