ABSTRACT. I develop a conceptual framework based on a systematic and comprehensive literature review on COVID-19 threat perceptions and vaccine hesitancy in relation to safety and efficacy concerns. Building my argument by drawing on data collected from de Beaumont, DHL, ICF, KFF, and McKinsey, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding COVID-19 vaccine attitudes and behavior. The data for this research were gathered via an online survey questionnaire. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.
