Using Behavioral Insights to Increase Vaccination Policy Effectiveness
TLDR
It is suggested that there are several interventions that may be effective for complacent, convenient, and calculating individuals whereas interventions that might beeffective for those who lack confidence are scarce, and efforts should be concentrated on motivating the complacent.
It runs in the family - Influenza vaccination and spillover effects.
Increasing Vaccination: Putting Psychological Science Into Action
TLDR
It is found that few randomized trials have successfully changed what people think and feel about vaccines, and those that succeeded were minimally effective in increasing uptake.
Risky behaviour and non-vaccination
TLDR
It is found that excess sun exposure, poor oral hygiene, smoking, and unhealthy diet choices correlated with reduced vaccination probability—both over the subsequent year and for that individual’s lifetime.
Attractive Flu Shot: A Behavioral Approach to Increasing Influenza Vaccination Uptake Rates

    Medical decision making : an international journal of the Society for Medical Decision Making

TLDR
Introducing 2 options to get vaccinated against influenza (early or late) positively affects intentions to receive the flu shot, and this approach nudges participants to take the shot in early winter, a timing that has been shown to be more cost-effective.
The effect of postcard reminders on vaccinations among the elderly: a block-randomized experiment
TLDR
The statistically significant and substantively small increase in overall vaccination rates was driven by participants who received the postcard reminder early in the intervention period, and illustrates how researchers can study the causal impact of an intervention even when a pure parallel trial is not possible.
Financial Incentives and Other Nudges Do Not Increase Covid-19 Vaccinations Among the Vaccine Hesitant
TLDR
Financial incentives and other behavioral nudges do not meaningfully increase SARS-CoV-2 vaccination rates amongst the vaccine hesitant and negative messages decreased vaccination rates for some subgroups.
Information nudges for influenza vaccination: Evidence from a large-scale cluster-randomized controlled trial
TLDR
Sending information letters is an effective and easily scalable low-cost intervention strategy to increase vaccine uptake in an elderly population and communicating the social benefits of vaccination in addition to individual benefits does not enhance influenza vaccine uptake.

Using implementation intentions prompts to enhance influenza vaccination rates
TLDR
A field experiment to measure the effect of prompts to form implementation intentions on realized behavioral outcomes at free on-site clinics offered by a large firm to its employees finds that vaccination rates increased when these implementation intentions prompts were included in the mailing.
Influenza Immunization Campaigns: Is an Ounce of Prevention Worth a Pound of Cure?
This study provides causal evidence on the health and economic consequences of a broad-scope vaccination program. The Ontario Influenza Immunization Campaign (introduced in 2001) expanded the scope
Social Networks and Vaccination Decisions
TLDR
The excess clustering of friends at inoculation clinics suggests that students coordinate their vaccination decisions with their friends, and indicates that social exposure to medical information raises people’s perceptions of the benefits of immunization.
Incentives to Exercise
TLDR
It appears that providing financial incentive to attend the gym regularly for a month serves as a catalyst to get some people past the threshold of actually getting started with an exercise regimen, particularly in the area of health.
Influenza Vaccination Campaigns: Is an Ounce of Prevention Worth a Pound of Cure?
TLDR
Results indicate coverage expansion leads to large excess gains for program-regions; benefits exhibit decreasing returns corresponding to a standard model of disease dynamics; and substantial external benefits accrue to older adults.

Education and Hiv/Aids Prevention: Evidence from a Randomized Evaluation in Western Kenya
TLDR
After two years, girls in schools where teachers had been trained were more likely to be married in the event of a pregnancy and reducing the cost of education by paying for school uniforms reduced dropout rates, teen marriage, and childbearing.
A randomized, controlled trial of financial incentives for smoking cessation.
TLDR
In this study of employees of one large company, financial incentives for smoking cessation significantly increased the rates of smoking cessation.
Effect of patient reminder/recall interventions on immunization rates: A review.
TLDR
All types of reminders were effective in improving immunization rates, with telephone reminders being most effective but costliest, and primary care physicians should use patient reminders to improve immunization delivery.
