COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy in Pregnancy, Breastfeeding, and Parenthood

COVID-19 Research Area(s): Healthcare Delivery & Policy, Vaccines & Treatments

Limited data on COVID-19 vaccine developments for pregnant and breastfeeding persons as well as for children may increase vaccine hesitancy in Canada. To counter misinformation and promote vaccine uptake, this project will examine vaccine hesitancies and concerns among people who are (or planning to be) pregnant or breastfeeding and parents with young children in BC. Quantitative and qualitative data will be collected to examine COVID-19 vaccine knowledge, concerns, and vaccine hesitancy to assist in developing knowledge mobilization materials for these groups. A deeper understanding of these communities’ hesitancies will allow us to create tailored resources for these priority populations to promote vaccine acceptance.
