ABSTRACT. With growing evidence of COVID-19 mandatory vaccination policies, immunization coverage rate, and containment measures, there is an essential demand for comprehending whether mandatory vaccination can be a practical and adequate tool intended for intensifying the immunization coverage rate and thus less containment measures. In this research, prior findings were cumulated indicating that COVID-19 mandatory vaccination policies can ensure increased levels of immunization coverage. We carried out a quantitative literature review of ProQuest, Scopus, and the Web of Science throughout February and April 2021, with search terms including “COVID-19 mandatory vaccination,” “COVID-19 vaccine rollout,” “COVID‐19 vaccine acceptance,” and “COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy.” As we analyzed research published in 2021, only 226 papers met the eligibility criteria. By eliminating controversial or unclear findings (insufficient/irrelevant data), results unsubstantiated by replication, too imprecise or undetailed content, and studies having quite similar titles, we decided on 29, mainly empirical, sources. Subsequent analyses should develop on COVID-19 vaccination as a condition of employment.
