MISSION

 

 

The Working Group targets to establish the understanding and provide the evidence that vaccinations for all ages against all vaccine-preventable diseases are the main strategy to reduce unnecessary hospitalizations, minimize the danger of other disease outbreaks in the middle of a pandemic, and to build herd immunity against a number of diseases protecting the vulnerable members of society, allowing the health system to build up their capacity, protect their resources and stay focused to address the current emerging pandemic of COVID-19.
