This policy brief reports survey data collected in Alokpatsa (n = 338), Brewaniase (n = 359), and Tutukpene (n = 753) – three sub-municipalities in Nkwanta South, a district in the Oti region of Ghana – in January 2022. Data was collected in-person via community volunteers, who were trained by the municipal health directorate on good research practice and how to use the electronic devices to collect health data. Analyses were conducted on a relatively large sample of rural respondents (n = 1500). We compare socio-demographics of vaccinated vs. unvaccinated participants, and examine key groups most associated with vaccine hesitancy.
