Mitigation and Prevention

This review examines major reasons for vaccine hesitancy among immigrants without documentation, particularly around lack of access to information, language barriers, and work conflicts, and fear of government/immigration services. The paper also discusses solutions to overcome vaccine hesitancy, particularly government stakeholders providing culturally and linguistically responsive information and education about COVID-19 and vaccines, and partnering with trusted community-based organizations.
