The Little Jab Book: A Playbook for COVID-19 Vaccination in Papua New Guinea

COVID-19 has had significant economic and health impacts around the world. In Papua New Guinea (PNG), COVID-19 has led to 669 confirmed deaths and 46,663 cases from January 3, 2020 to January 25, 2023. To minimize the number of infections, the short and long-term negative health effects, and the number of deaths due to COVID-19, a global vaccination roll-out is imperative, making the vaccines the number one measure to combat this pandemic. Inspired by the Little Jab book series, this book begins with a look into the most important vaccine uptake problems in PNG and highlights interventions to overcome these problems. It includes 12 recommended behavioral science interventions for adults living in urban or rural PNG.
