MHADRI member Prof. Denise Spitzer is the Managing Guest editor of this edition of the Journal of Migration and health. The call for papers is as follows:

“Some migrant groups have been disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, with the pandemic highlighting major health inequities in these populations globally. Migration status, gender, linguistic, financial, informational barriers, and temporal constraints are known to influence access to health services, which may have had implications for their inclusion in national responses during the pandemic, including vaccine access. This special issue seeks articles that address the politics and politicisation of migrants and migration in the roll-out of COVID-19 vaccinations, inclusion in national responses during the pandemic, and inclusion in vaccine programmes more broadly. Articles that bring a critical, political-economic, or feminist lens and intersectional or gendered analysis are particularly welcome. Topics could include:

  • Vaccine uptake/coverage in migrants
  • Barriers/facilitators to vaccination
  • Vaccine hesitancy
  • Migrant health equity

You are invited to submit your manuscript at any time before the submission deadline of 28th February 2022. The usual Journal of Migration and Health publication fee will be waived for all accepted papers received before the submission deadline. Submissions will be published online as they are accepted.”
