A report summarising the discussions and call to action from the CLCI European Parliament roundtable held on 27 June.
A progress report that evaluates the current state of pneumococcal vaccination coverage, recommendations, and funding across 42 European countries.
This report makes a detailed assessment of the impact that fake news is having on vaccination.
This report has identified the main barriers affecting uptake of routine immunisation and outlines recommendations for stakeholders at a local, national and EU level.
The results presented here offer subjective insights from immunisation experts on the introduction of COVID-19 vaccines. The report also looks beyond the pandemic to explore the legacy of COVID and its potential to shape the future of life-course immunisation.
Almost 80% of Europeans would consult a medical professional for information about vaccines, and 65% consider them the most trustworthy source of information.
The 16th World Congress on Public Health (WCPH) was held virtually on 12-16 October 2020. The theme of the Congress “Public health for the future of humanity: analysis, advocacy and action” is even more relevant now than ever before.
In Europe poor vaccine coverage has led to large outbreaks of infectious diseases with, mainly, adolescent and adult fatalities in countries that had previously eliminated or interrupted endemic transmission.
