Vaccines for a healthier Europe
Vaccines are one of the greatest medical achievements of our time, saving 2-3 million lives globally each year by preventing infectious diseases.
Vaccination plays a vital part in ensuring the public health and wellbeing of European citizens, by preventing disease, reducing the burden on health services and supporting healthy populations.
Vaccines Europe supports broad access to immunisation, enabling better protection of the health of individuals and the wider community throughout life, with both existing vaccines and those in development.
We won’t rest until we’ve helped make the world a healthier place for everyone.
