WORKING TOWARDS BROAD (LIFECOURSE) AND OPTIMAL (INCREASED VACCINE COVERAGE RATE VCR) FLU PREVENTION

MEETING REPORT 2019

The Group agreed that Healthcare Professionals should do more to promote the benefits of the seasonal flu vaccination, as it can prevent serious complications caused by the influenza virus. Coverage rates among infants and children are still relatively low and this needs to change, as it would help prevent transmitting the virus into other population groups, such as the elderly. Healthcare professionals should be routinely (but not compulsorily) vaccinated, as this would not only protect their health and their patients but would also influence the general public to be also vaccinated.
