Background: Vaccine hesitancy is deemed to be a major challenge in the fight against the Covid-19 pandemic. The challenge of vaccine hesitancy poses a greater threat to global health as the world is currently faced with Covid-19 which has claimed approximately 4,627,540 and 84 877 lives globally and in South Africa respectively. Moreover, vaccine hesitancy threatens the success of the vaccine roll-out efforts and may lead to the inability of communities to reach the necessary coverage required for head immunity against Covid-19.
