ABSTRACT. Based on an in-depth survey of the literature, the purpose of the paper is to explore COVID-19 vaccine education as regards behavioral and socio-demographic factors related to vaccine uptake and hesitancy. Using and replicating data from Horizon Research, Jones et al. (2021), KFF, and WHO, I performed analyses and made estimates regarding perceptual barriers to widespread COVID-19 vaccination. Descriptive statistics of compiled data from the completed surveys were calculated when appropriate.
