The development of the Covid-19 vaccines is promising to end the pandemic. However, having a safe and efficacy vaccine is one thing, ensuring them get delivered is quite another. The ‘Great Lockdown’ has not only largely restricted the movement of people and goods, but also caused significant impacts on the delivery of PPEs and other healthcare products. This study aims to understand how supply chains can mirror the demand for Covid-19 vaccinations. It employs the Protection Motiving Theory to investigate the relationships between participants’ information on vaccine availability and their decisions on vaccine uptake.
