The COVID-19 pandemic is a global health concern that caused massive disruption to almost all aspects of human life. Hence, the scientific community developed vaccines to reduce the risks of the virus. Vaccination against COVID-19 has been rolled out to countries worldwide, including the Philippines, in the effort to attain herd immunity. Yet, despite the vaccine’s availability, people continue to express hesitancy. This study explores the COVID-19 vaccine hesitancy from the experiences and beliefs of Social Studies students in LNU. A case study design was used to gain deep insights into how the experiences and beliefs of Social Studies students shaped vaccine hesitancy. Employing Thematic Analysis, the research findings are: (1) the common reasons for vaccine hesitancy of Social Studies students are, family pressure, health concerns, and the perceived necessity of vaccination, other factors include religious belief and vaccine efficacy, (2) the hesitant students expressed a positive outlook towards new health protocols stating that it is implemented for the good of the majority, however, they are aware and have experienced mobility restrictions in entering commercial establishments and, (3) lastly, the vaccine-hesitant students are aware of their immunity as unvaccinated and their social acceptance in the community they belong.
