This article intends to assess the urban social vulnerability associated with public health emergencies in some provinces and cities of China, in order to provide decision-making reference for regional emergency management and scientific early warning. Method: Refer to the HOP model to construct an evaluation index system of urban social vulnerability associated with public health events, use the CRITIC-entropy method to determine the index weight, and evaluate the urban social vulnerability of 29 provinces (cities) evaluation units. According to the different impacts of sensitivity and coping ability on urban social vulnerability, the evaluation area is divided into five categories: highly sensitive, sensitive, balanced, lacking in coping ability, and highly lacking in coping ability. The results show that there is a big gap in the urban social vulnerability index between different regions; compared with the coping ability, the socio-economic sensitivity fluctuates more drastically.
