Vaccines Europe position paper on Life-long immunisation

2016 10 10 Written by Vaccines Europe

Vaccine-preventable diseases have significant impacts on adult mortality, health and quality of life. Adult vaccination has been given less emphasis than other health priorities and its benefits to societies are not as well recognised. Current national vaccination recommendations focusing on childhood vaccines need to be expanded to ensure opportunities for other population groups, such as adults and particularly those ages 65 and older, who are at highest risk for many infections.

Vaccines Europe calls on public health authorities to set up a structured dialogue/platform bringing together all stakeholders with the objective of establishing a roadmap for putting at the top of national agendas a life-long vaccination approach in Europe, as proposed in the Council conclusions on vaccinations as an effective tool in public health.
