ABSTRACT. This paper analyzes the outcomes of an exploratory review of the current research on COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy in relation to misperception, distress, and skepticism. The data used for this study was obtained and replicated from previous research conducted by ASPE, Healthwatch Bexley, KFF, Pew Research Center, and WHO. I performed analyses and made estimates regarding drivers of COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy, reluctance, and refusal. Data collected from 6,600 respondents are tested against the research model. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.
