Immunizations are one of the most effective methods in reducing morbidity, mortality, and healthcare costs associated with infectious diseases. Despite these benefits, recent outbreaks of vaccine preventable diseases have been associated with an increase in vaccine hesitancy—one of the top ten threats to global health (WHO). In this study, we identified factors that contribute to vaccine hesitancy among a rural population. Our results indicate that the highest levels of vaccine hesitancy center around the issue of confidence—a lack of trust in the safety and efficacy of vaccines, the health system that administers vaccines, and the motivations behind immunization policies.
