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.
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 over the past months but also to address those new and emerging challenges before they become insurmountable and established norms within our Societies and healthcare systems. EIP's 4 Vaccine Stakeholder Working Groups have been convened to tackle these urgent challenges and barriers.
SAFE COVID-19 VACCINES FOR EUROPEANS
A safe and effective vaccine is our best chance to beat coronavirus and return to our normal lives. The European Commission has been working tirelessly to secure doses of potential vaccines, that can be shared with all. But it is a vaccination that saves lives. The European Commission supports EU countries in the rollout of their national vaccination plans. Vaccination will start across the EU on 27, 28 and 29 December 2020.
WORKING GROUPS TO OVERCOME VACCINATION BARRIERS
EIP are proud to be working with 20 European associations, allied organisations and medical student associations to overcome vaccination barriers wherever they occur. By working together on the LifeCourse Immunisation Initiative and Working Groups we can increase vaccine confidence, maintain routine vaccination schedules and improve health system resilience in unprecedented times.

But there's light at the end of the tunnel: if enough of us get vaccinated, we'll have a way out of the pandemic & can gradually get our lives back
Until then, let's keep washing our hands & restricting physical contacts#StrongerTogether pic.twitter.com/FEweadvfpZ
