Research Article of American Journal of Public Administration STATE EVICTION BANS: A POLICY RESPONSE TO COVID-19 Susan E. Baer, Ph.D.1*, Victor Ferreros, Ph.D.1 1Walden University, Contributing Faculty Member, School of Public Policy and Administration. The COVID-19 pandemic has shined a light on the importance of housing as a social determinant of health. To prevent millions of American renters from being evicted from their homes during the COVID-19 pandemic and potentially becoming homeless, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a temporary eviction ban order on September 4, 2020 that has currently been extended through June 30, 2021. This paper examines the rationale for the CDC temporary eviction ban order from a public health perspective. It then uses statistical techniques to explore the relationship between political and demographic variables and temporary eviction bans enacted in individual states during the pandemic. Results show a statistically significant relationship between political party control of the state legislature and temporary state eviction bans which suggests that partisanship has largely driven the use of temporary eviction bans as a policy response to COVID-19 at the state level.

Review Article of American Journal of Public Administration THE NEGATIONISM OF ANTI VACCINE MOVEMENT Thais Monteiro de Lucena¹*, José Luiz de Campos Ribeiro Júnior¹, Myllena Carolina Sales da Silva¹, Nayhara Rayanna Gomes da Silva¹, Isla Naraelly Gonçalves de Moura Rosendo¹, Aracele Tenório de Almeida e Cavalcanti² ¹Discente da Universidade Federal de Pernambuco (UFPE); ²Enfermeira do Hospital das Clinicas, Doutora em Ciências da Saúde, Docente da UFPE Objective: To identify the causes of the vaccine refusal and thus the severities that the anti-vaccine movement reflected in the population. Methods: Extended abstract of the literature review, researched papers documents in the Virtual Health Library (VHL) databases, the Journal Coordination Portal of Improvement of Higher-Education Personnel (CAPES), Scielo (Scientific Electronic Library Online), and Google Scholar applying exclusion criteria. Results: In their study Hu et al, 2019, observed 24.9% of vaccine refusal, a higher percentage compared to a sample of 285, where 33.7% have doubt in relation to the efficacy of the vaccine, 34% distrust the pharmaceutical industry, 38.2% are concerned with the vaccine safety, and 37.2% do not consider the vaccine essential, strongly characterizing the anti-vaccine movement. Fonseca et al, 2018, study shows a smaller percentage of vaccine refusals, 0.14%, which is considered low. This result may possibly be related to educational level of the sampled population. 74% of the participants in his study had higher education degrees indicating a possible correlation between education levels and acceptance of vaccination. Conclusion: Results of this study shows a need for further research on the repercussions of the anti-vaccine movement. It also demonstrate a need for additional outreach programs based on awareness and education of the population regarding vaccination. Keywords: Movement against vaccine. Refusal of vaccine.
