YOUNG COALITION FOR PREVENTION AND VACCINATION (YC4PV)

In 2019, Thin Young built the YC4PV composed of young healthcare professionals from more than 20 EU countries. The campaign aims to induce sustainable behaviour change to ensure that vaccination becomes a social norm, and Think Young believes that the young generation can drive this change. The YC4PV is currently continuing and enlarging the scope of the campaign to advocate the importance of prevention and immunisation through a series of online activities. Please find below the YC4PV key milestones:

  • In 2017, ThinkYoung conducted research on Youth Vaccine Perception which was designed to investigate the awareness level of vaccination among young Europeans. Our research revealed that only 65% of the young people interviewed considered the benefits of vaccination to outweigh the risks.
  • The YC4PV created a Manifesto highlighting 10 recommendations for vital actions in the field of immunisation addressed to the European Institutions. In January 2020, the YC4PV Manifesto was launched at the European Parliament in Brussels. 
  • In February 2021, Think Young published its report ‘Youth in the Health Sector & COVID-19'. Through online consultation, we analysed the views of youth in the health sector as a direct result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Ranging from education to vaccine confidence, presenting a glimpse of the real-life experiences of young people in 2020/21.
