Re: What should we do about vaccine hesitancy?
Vaccination is the cornerstone of public health and is one of the most cost-effective health-care interventions. Vaccination status of a population is as important as Infant Mortality Rate is to a Country's development.
Vaccine hesitancy is a very complex issue. It is influenced by numerous parental and vaccine-specific factors. These factors need to be understood better to be addressed better. Since addressing any public health concern begins at the population and community level, a good starting point could be identifying the target population and listening to the true nature of their particular vaccine or vaccination concerns and perceptions.
