European Parliament launch of the SAATI EU Report Card on Adult Immunisation, 13 November 2013

2013 10 30 Written by Vaccines Europe

Vaccines Europe is currently cooperating with SAATI for the launch and dissemination of a SAATI commissioned EU Report Card on the state of play of adult immunisation in the EU27 and the benefits of implementing a life course approach to vaccination.

The report consolidates existing research on the incidence of the main vaccine-preventable diseases in Europe and bringing new evidence on the economic benefits of adult vaccination. It also aims to shed light on the gaps existing in adult immunisation policies in EU Member States and seeks to identify the key determinants for the successful implementation of adult vaccination policies across the EU27.

More information on the report and the report itself are available here.

Vaccines Europe is supporting the launch of the report through a public event in the European Parliament in Brussels, which will take place on 13 November 2013, from 12h30 – 14h30.

During the launch event, the key findings and recommendations of the report will be presented and the SAATI Call for Action to develop a strong and comprehensive life-course vaccination strategy to tackle infectious diseases will be launched. The report can be downloaded here.

The launch event will be hosted by MEP Rebecca Taylor (ALDE, UK). A preliminary programme is available here below and will be regularly updated as speakers are confirmed.
