    In a series of papers published today in the special WHO-edited issue of the journal “Vaccine,” experts review the role of vaccine hesitancy in limiting vaccine coverage and explore strategies to address it.
    Vaccine hesitancy refers to delay in acceptance or refusal of vaccines despite availability of vaccination services. The issue is complex and context specific, varying across time, place and vaccines. It is influenced by factors such as complacency, convenience and confidence.
