Abstract

In this work, we investigated the correlation between education levels and COVID-19 vaccination in 36 cities in Turkey. We demonstrated if the percentage of people less educated than high school level increases, the percentage of unvaccinated people increases too. The correlation value between the percentage of people less educated than high school level and the percentage of unvaccinated people is 0.9198. The methods used are correlation matrix and linear regression.

Methods
