​In 2019, the World Health Organisation (WHO) named ‘vaccine hesitancy’ amongst its top global threats. In recent years, and particularly since the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been renewed attention worldwide on the need to build trust in vaccination. Community engagement, for example, has become a key component of health agencies’ efforts to deliver effective vaccination campaigns. Significant challenges however remain, both in understanding drivers of vaccine confidence in context and in engaging communities at all stages of the vaccine deployment process. In this Medical Anthropology Seminar, researchers from the Childcare and Wellness Clinics will discuss findings from their recent study on community engagement for vaccination in Kano State, Northern Nigeria.
