WORKING GROUP

Influenza Vaccinations as a Priority in the COVID-19 Era


Focus: The Influenza Working Group Meeting, now in its 6th year, has the aim of increasing seasonal influenza vaccine above the target 75% in all countries across Europe, but crucially long-term. Influenza vaccination rates have been boosted in 2020/21 due to the need to avoid influenza caused hospitalisation in parallel to COVID-19 admissions. However, the very real fear is that influenza vaccination rates will fall back to even lower rates than pre-COVID levels in future years.

SUGGESTED ACTIONS AND CAMPAIGNS 2021/22

 
 

Based on all the work and collaboration between the Working Groups, both in the Expert mapping surveys and the Working Groups that took place in 2020, the reports include Observations, Challenges, Strategies and Suggested Campaigns/Actions for each barrier or observation.

Working alongside partners and supporters we will then tackle as many areas and conduct as many proposed actions as possible to overcome barriers to vaccination uptake.
