In November 2023, Public Health Scotland commissioned research to gain insight into attitudes towards vaccination among people living in areas of high relative deprivation, where data suggests rates of vaccine uptake are lower than in other parts of the country.  Research was designed to explore barriers and motivators to vaccination, in the hope that findings could inform future vaccine policy and delivery, contributing to the organisation's ambition of improving life expectancy in Scotland.
