WORKING TOWARDS A LIFECOURSE IMMUNISATION APPROACH
MEETING REPORT 2019
A true LifeCourse approach to vaccinations is still a long way off and that there needs to be a change in policymakers' mindsets of how vaccines can play a pivotal role in providing protection from the cradle to the grave. Elderly people and high-risk populations, such as infants, immunocompromised individuals and patients with chronic diseases, can be the starting point for a far wider universal coverage. Educational programs informing about vaccines and their benefits on quality of life should be applied. Communication between health care professionals and patients should be improved and communication strategies need to vary according to the age group addressed using different media platforms.
