Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

Vaccines are among the greatest achievements in the history of humanity. Despite the increased use of vaccines in public health, concerns about vaccine safety remain. Fear over vaccine safety is the most critical factor in vaccine hesitancy. Vaccine hesitancy consists of three pillars: confidence (level of trust in vaccine/provider/health institutions/governments, etc.), complacency (perceived risk of vaccine-preventable diseases is low), and convenience (access issues). Vaccine hesitancy is a complex concept that is influenced by various factors, both personal and contextual. The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic represents an unprecedented global devastation of humanity in terms of the dramatic loss of human life and economic and social deregulation. Vaccination against COVID-19 is of vital importance in the fight against the pandemic. Consequently, the investigation of COVID-19 vaccination coverage and its determinants is a research area of utmost importance. We are happy to announce this Special Issue of EJIPHE entitled "Epidemiological features of COVID-19 vaccination". We look forward to receiving your submissions.

You are welcome to send short proposals for submissions of feature papers to our Editorial Office for an initial evaluation.

Dr. George Rachiotis
Guest Editor
