6th LifeCourse Immunisation Summit - 2021

 
 

The stark reality is that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to face the fact that we are now living in a new era, one that is impacting all aspects of our lives, including our healthcare priorities. Established vaccine barriers to increase vaccination rates have now shifted and new ones have emerged, we must come together to identify, assess and react to these new priorities urgently. The Healthcare Community and Policymakers must address the new and emerging challenges before they become insurmountable. By bringing together the key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers EIP are constantly working on what needs to change and what activities need to happen to support the desired change.

  • The Summit is tasked with identifying and supporting interventions and actions to increase vaccination rates across the board.

  • The Working Groups are tasked with discussing and debating the latest changes, along with the latest surveillance data, and then putting forward strategies and campaigns to overcome the vaccine barriers identified.

  • The smaller Expert Groups (typically 3-5 experts) are tasked with identifying, proposing and implementing actions to increase vaccination rates in a particular disease or policy area open a specific barrier or question.

Participants are invited individual experts, organisations, policymakers, patient group representatives. View the program.

 
         


Vaccines Together is an initiative and online collaboration hub run by EIP, targeting to increase vaccination coverage rates across Europe, and across all stages of life. We aim to achieve this by facilitating collaboration, best practices exchange, ideas and educational resources sharing among organisations, associations, and institutions involved in promoting vaccinations. In addition, we run linked campaigns directly to individual members and healthcare professionals to promote vaccines at every possible opportunity.


In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic we are living in a new era, one that is affecting all aspects of our lives, including our healthcare priorities. While previous barriers to increase vaccination rates still exist, new and urgent challenges have now been added that significantly affect our ability to protect all against Vaccine-Preventable Diseases. The Healthcare Community and Policymakers must take action now, not only to recover the lost vaccine coverage but also to address those new and emerging challenges before they become insurmountable and established norms within our Societies and healthcare systems. EIP’s Focus Group, Vaccine Stakeholder Working Groups and Expert Groups have been convened to tackle these urgent challenges and barriers.

It’s only by working with organisations, partner associations, as well as vaccine and health policy experts from the leading universities across Europe, that we are able to unite to overcome barriers to vaccine uptake and advocate a LifeCourse vaccination approach to protecting all against vaccine-preventable diseases.
