      Vaccine hesitancy can be defined as the delay in acceptance or complete refusal of vaccines.

      It can be caused by:
      1. Concerns about vaccine safety
      2. Negative beliefs based on myths
      3. Misinformation
      4. Mistrust in the health care professional or health care system
      5. Costs of vaccines

      Vaccine hesitancy, a complex phenomenon influenced by a myriad of factors, continues to be a significant challenge in public health efforts worldwide. While vaccines have proven to be one of the most effective tools in preventing infectious diseases and saving lives, skepticism and reluctance persist among certain communities and individuals.

      Combatting vaccine hesitancy is an ongoing process that requires collaboration across sectors and sustained efforts to promote vaccine literacy, combat misinformation, and foster trust in public health interventions. By understanding the complexities of vaccine hesitancy and employing tailored strategies to address it, we can work towards achieving widespread immunization and protecting global health.
