Route: Health care research, sickness prevention and treatment

Cluster question: 096 How can we improve diagnostics, treatment, and vaccines for immunodeficiencies and infectious diseases?

Vaccines are one of the most important and cost-effective public health measures, safeguarding millions of people worldwide from illness, disability and death. This importance has been powerfully emphasized by the Covid-19 pandemic. We see hesitancy as a process that develops and adapts over time and in different settings, rather than a behaviour or an attitude. in this project we aim to increase our understanding of the dynamics of hesitancy, how it is constructed in the practical situations of everyday life.
