Abstract: COVID-19 and its evolving multiple variant is a challenge to the whole world and to our country. It has been estimated that vaccine coverage of 70-80% is achieved to attain heard immunity. COVID-19 vaccine deployment faces an unprecedented degree of hesitancy based on social and behavioral insights. Method: Using the Untitled-Google Form, which collected data through saiabisha[at] from 140 responders aged 18 years and above, across Tamil Nadu State of India and make use of the same Untitled-Google Form statistical analysis for the study was done Result: In our study Low level of vaccine hesitancy-likely to get the vaccine but not certain is 27.5%, High levels of vaccine hesitancy-probably not get the vaccine is 39.1%, Vaccine resistant-definitely not going to get the vaccine is 3% and definitely going to be vaccinated is 30.4% among our study group. Conclusion: Our findings suggest that low level and high level Vaccine Hesitancy (27.5%+39.1%) accounts for a significant proportion of the population which can be addressed by public health messaging but for a significant minority of the population with strongly held beliefs (3%), alternative measures should be looked to achieve sufficient vaccination coverage to end the COVID19 pandemic.
