Vaccines Together is an initiative and online collaboration hub run by EIP, targeting to increase vaccination coverage rates across Europe and all ages. We aim to achieve this by facilitating collaboration, best practices exchange, ideas and educational resource 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.

Vaccines Together’s Annual Summit and Working Groups aim to establish the disease burden and prevalence of vaccine-preventable diseases and advise strategies to overcome barriers and increase vaccination uptake. In addition, they are tasked with protecting vaccination budgets and establishing vaccinations as the basis of health system resilience across Europe. By bringing together over 40 key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers, we aim to advise evidence-based strategies, practices, and policies that should be implemented. 

Since 2016, the LifeCourse Summit has been our Annual meeting for all stakeholders involved in Vaccines Together. Typically 40-60 participants with presentations and expert briefings, followed by discussion points on overcoming barriers and recommendations on what should be done. Co-located at the Annual EIP Conference, the Summit is central to EIP’s work.

Feeding into and out of the Summit are dedicated Vaccination Working Groups with the goal of increasing vaccination rates in a particular disease field or policy area. Typically 15-25 members per Working Group work on strategies to overcome vaccine barriers by identifying and supporting targeted actions to increase vaccination rates. Current Working Groups include 1) LifeCourse Immunisation, 2) Vaccine Confidence, 3) RSV Prevention, 4) Meningococcal Vaccinations, 5) Influenza Vaccinations, and 6) Pneumococcal Vaccinations.

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. 



Work with EIP and Vaccines Together to change perceptions and behaviours, improve vaccination policies and protect all against vaccine-preventable diseases across Europe and the world. Use the form to contact EIP and let us know the Working Groups that you're interested in participating.
