Potential labelling/packaging improvements to facilitate vaccine supply

2018 07 10 Written by Vaccines Europe

Europe is a long-standing leader in vaccines. Maintaining this position and ensuring vaccine availability in times of increased demand and supply constraints can only be achieved by a committed industry, operating in a stable environment, able to produce vaccines of the highest quality and to innovate to meet future vaccine needs.

Shortages of medicines, including vaccines, are of increasing concern in the EU and globally. The causes are multiple. Finding solutions requires a concerted effort by all key stakeholders. Vaccines Europe is contributing to finding such solutions.

We describe the potential labelling/packaging improvements that could facilitate vaccine supply in our position paper accessible here.

Vaccines Europe Paper: Improving Access and Convenience to Vaccination

2018 06 21 Written by Vaccines Europe

Vaccination is one of the most cost-effective public health interventions ever implemented, significantly decreasing the worldwide incidence of numerous deadly diseases and associated mortality. To ensure the continuous and optimal protection of all citizens against infectious vaccine-preventable diseases, taking into consideration the ageing population, better access to immunisation should be ensured and provided throughout Europe. Expanding convenient access to vaccine administration should go together as a shared responsibility to vaccinate with all other Health Care Providers, HCPs (Doctors/GPs, nurses, midwives, pharmacists etc).
