Childhood Vaccination Hesitancy, Reasons and Implications - A Literature Review

Norah Alrashed, Haya Alshaibani


Abstract: Vaccines have proven to be both lifesaving and cost-effective measure. Vaccination is considered to be the most effective and efficient way to prevent communicable diseases. Nevertheless, vaccine hesitancy remains a huge obstacle that has been present since the development of the first vaccine over three centuries ago. Vaccine hesitancy is considered a complex multifactorial issue with unfortunate consequences. Researchers have been able to understand some factors leading to this problem. However, further studies are needed to discover more factors that can influence vaccine decision-making to reach the roots of the problem to fix it.
