About this Research Topic
This Research Topic will focus on vaccination and its related measures in combating the COVID-19 pandemic. We aim to understand the challenges of the COVID-19 vaccination roll-out; evaluate vaccine hesitancy among the different populations; understand the real-world safety and effectiveness of the COVID-19 vaccine, and gain insights into the experience of combined COVID-19 vaccination.
We welcome submissions of Original Research, Systematic Review, Clinical Trial and Policy Brief, on the subtopics of the following, but are not limited to:
• Hesitancy to vaccinate against COVID-19: The impact of population knowledge, attitudes and behaviour on vaccine hesitancy; Effects of vaccination willingness, vaccination behavior, and vaccine hesitancy on vaccination coverages;
• Real-world evaluation of the safety and effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines: Safety, persistence and protection of different types of vaccines; Comparison of effectiveness of different vaccines against infection, severe and hospitalized cases;
• Combined vaccination of COVID-19 vaccines: Impact of COVID-19 on routine immunization, best practices in routine immunization, combined vaccination to increase vaccination coverage in the context of COVID-19
