ThinkYoung recently conducted a timely consultation just how young health professionals across Europe are taking action and tackling vaccine hesitancy during the pandemic. Young people are stepping up and acting as change-makers but are some of the more vulnerable during the pandemic.
The consultation showed that the biggest concern young health professionals had been on health and the economy, and more specifically the ability of public health systems to respond to such a huge crisis. Young people desire evidence-based policies and interventions for COVID-19 recovery packages geared towards substantial change. The work of the Young Coalition for Prevention and Vaccination (YC4PV), a coalition of young professionals engaged in healthcare or in health policy, who are mobilizing to raise vaccination awareness full consultation report will be released over the coming days.
