In this study we focused on two aspects. First, in addition to vaccine hesitancy, we wanted to understand people’s knowledge, awareness, perception, and attitude towards the availability of and access to vaccines. Second, in all analyses we stratify the answers by the respondents’ gender to unearth possible gender disparities which may shed light on concerns regarding vaccine distribution. This could foster special attention to making vaccine distribution more equitable and fairer. The study aimed to understand the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic along gender lines using quantitative survey-based data and qualitative interviews of men and women. The survey will follow a cohort of nationally representative adults over three rounds of data collection over a period of one year. The first round of survey was carried out in December 2020.
