Meta-analysis of COVID-19 Vaccine Hesitancy Behavioral & Social Science Research

Pfizer Global Medical Grants (GMG) supports the global healthcare community’s independent initiatives (e.g., research, quality improvement, or education) to improve patient outcomes in areas of unmet medical need that are aligned with Pfizer’s medical and/or scientific strategies. Pfizer’s GMG competitive grant program involves a publicly posted general Request for Proposal (RFP) that provides detail regarding a general area of interest, sets timelines for review and approval, and uses an internal Pfizer review process to make final grant decisions. Organizations are invited to submit an application addressing the research gaps as outlined in the specific RFP. 

Projects that will be considered for Pfizer support will focus on a metaanalysis of current behavioral and social science research of COVID-19 vaccine confidence/hesitancy in groups/subgroups who are most at risk due to disparities and social determinants of health. Specifically, projects will address the effect that structural barriers (e.g., access), social determinants (e.g., racial and ethnic inequities, geography, economics, health literacy), and attitudes (e.g., fear, trust) have on vaccine confidence/hesitancy.  

Projects may focus on a single group/subgroup or may be more broadly focused.
