A critical review of measures of childhood vaccine confidence

May 19, 2021

The World Health Organization and global partners sought to identify existing measures of confidence in childhood vaccines, as part of a broader effort to measure the range of behavioural and social drivers of vaccination. The article identifies 14 confidence measures applicable to childhood vaccination in general, all published between 2010 and 2019.  The findings highlight the need for a childhood vaccine confidence measure validated for use in diverse global contexts.
