WORKING GROUP

INFLUENZA VACCINATIONS AS A PRIORITY IN THE COVID-19 ERA


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. 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 as social distancing measures are relaxed and COVID-19 vaccines rolled out, influenza vaccination rates will fall back to even lower rates than pre-COVID levels. The Working Group will also explore all barriers to uptake and explore how influenza vaccines should be promoted and even administered at the same time as COVID vaccinations to protect and increase uptake.
