WHO Recommendations Regarding Vaccine Hesitancy

Vaccine hesitancy refers to delay in acceptance or refusal of safe vaccines despite availability of vaccination services. This special issue of Vaccine is guest-edited by the World Health Organization (WHO) and focuses on the topic of vaccine hesitancy worldwide. People who delay or refuse vaccines for themselves or their children are presenting a growing challenge for countries seeking to close the immunization gap. The experts who authored the nine articles found in this issue review the role of vaccine hesitancy in limiting vaccine coverage and explore strategies to address it.
