The threat of vaccine hesitancy and addressing barriers to vaccine uptake

In the first instalment of our new #intheframe series, we focus on vaccination and explore the issue of vaccine hesitancy and the barriers to uptake that could be causing it.

The COVID-19 pandemic has brought many areas of healthcare into focus, perhaps none more so than vaccination. For many years now, vaccines have helped to reduce the incidence of life‑threatening diseases around the world, including COVID-19. 1 But with the World Health Organization listing vaccine hesitancy as one of the top ten threats to global health, there is clearly work to be done.²

Find out more in our feature infographic below, and be sure to keep your eyes peeled for our first article in the #intheframe series, where we delve deeper into the questions raised in this infographic.
