With the health systems in India under unprecedented pressure in treating patients infected with COVID-19 during the second wave, this study explores the attitudinal and informational factors associated with vaccine uptake and hypothetical vaccine choice. 3,50,000 daily new infections were witnessed across India between April and May 2021. We observed that with the pandemic progressing, the intentions of people to get vaccinated has reduced.   The Study We studied the factors affecting people’s willingness to get vaccinated, since vaccination is the main way to counter the spread of COVID-19 The Findings People who believed in the effectiveness of health behaviours like hand washing, sanitization, etc., were more likely to get vaccinated. India has a fairly high acceptance rate of 70%. But beliefs about its effectiveness, cost and side effects play a major role for vaccine uptake in India The Future Messaging associated with effectiveness of COVID-19 vaccines could have an impact on the vaccine uptake. Further research could help us determine what type of messaging will work. Working on developing such health communication is key to reducing vaccine hesitancy and improving vaccine coverage in coming months, in India https://www.researchgate.net/publication/358045597_Double_Jab_Survey_Evidence_on_Vaccine_Hesitancy_Beliefs_and_Attitudes_in_India
