Special Issue Information
Vaccination is one of the most effective public health interventions on mortality reduction and population growth. Generalize immunization and increasing vaccine uptake are the cost-effectiveness measure for health improvement. While there still are many challenges on vaccination worldwide, including declined public trust in vaccination, spread vaccine hesitancy around, geographic difference in delivery of vaccines, etc.
As we known, sociological factors are one of the major determinants of vaccine uptakes. The affordable and easily accessible vaccines, and high vaccine confidence will increase the vaccination coverage. While some culture and rumors on vaccines, and vaccine hesitancy will sharply decrease the vaccines uptake. To achieve a more extensive understanding of recent scientific knowledge and current trends in sociological determinants of vaccination, this special issue is focused on the recent scientific and technical progresses made in this field. Based on your extensive knowledge and experience, we invite you to contribute with an original report, original observation or review, to highlight (i) determinants of vaccine uptake, (ii) interventions to improve the vaccine uptake, (iii) vaccine hesitancy, and (iv) recent advances in novel vaccine delivery systems.
