Summary

From mid-November 2021 to mid-February 2022, a total of 4,429 surveys were collected among Cambodian and Myanmar migrants in the provinces of Chanthaburi, Chonburi, Ranong, Rayong, Tak, Trat, and Greater Bangkok Area. The findings help to identify attitudes and perceptions on COVID-19 vaccination, gauge the prevalence of vaccine acceptance among migrant communities in Thailand, and better understand the reasons for vaccine hesitancy. Additionally, the findings can be used to predict the trends about future vaccine uptake among these migrant communities and, consequently, develop strategies to improve acceptability and inform policy and possible responses to flatten the COVID-19 infection curve.
