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, by facilitating collaboration, best practices exchange, ideas and educational resources sharing among organisations, associations, and institutions involved in promoting vaccinations.
Vaccines Together's Expert Working Groups are tasked with identifying and supporting targeted interventions and actions to increase vaccination rates in a particular disease field or policy area by advocating universal immunity against all vaccines preventable diseases for all age groups. Members discuss and debate the latest policy changes across all regions, the latest surveillance data, the strategies to overcome vaccine hesitancy and then coordinate the recommended actions to take between the various participating organisations.

NEW WORKING GROUP
REPORTS FROM THE 2019 WORKING GROUPS
Even though vaccination coverage has been a priority in the majority of European countries for many years, coverage rates are still lagging behind targets and a lot still needs to be done before all are protected against all vaccine-preventable diseases. Heterogeneous childhood and adulthood national vaccination policies, differences in approach, prioritisation and processes, prevention policies not adapted to demographic changes and the increasingly ageing population, disease prevention in all stages of life not being yet a health policy priority, pack of policies to increase vaccines confidence, counteract misinformation and increase awareness and mobilise medical communities are among the main barriers.

Advocacy campaign to promote the uptake of vaccines among healthcare professionals and their patients. This campaign is launched online across Europe simultaneously with the European Immunization Week of the WHO Europe on 20 April 2020. The toolkit, produced by CPME, is made primarily for medical doctors. EFN has produced a toolkit for nurses and PGEU for pharmacists. The toolkit provides example posts to be linked to the campaign videos and images. All the campaign materials are easy to access and share on your organisation’s social media channels and website.
