Vaccine Europe's response to the European Health Union consultations

The Covid-19 pandemic represents an unprecedented experience for all of us and for the EU’s remit in responding to cross-border health threats. In this regard, Vaccines Europe believes that the proposals from the Commission to strengthen the resilience and preparedness of Europe against serious cross border health threats should build on the lessons learned from the COVID-19 pandemic.

Vaccines Europe is ready to work with the Commission, the co-legislators and all stakeholders to ensure that the European Health Union proposals are taken forward in a successful manner.
