VITAL Consortium

VITAL (Vaccines and Infectious Diseases in the Ageing Population) is an IMI initiative developed to fill the gaps in the current knowledge related to vaccination for ageing adults. The VITAL project focuses on the following areas led by four Work Packages (WP1-4):

  • WP1: the burden of infectious diseases (and their consequences);
  • WP2: the waning of the immune responsiveness associated with age and other intervening factors;
  • WP3: the value of vaccination in older adults;
  • WP4: the education/training of key stakeholders on vaccination of older adults.

Vaccines Europe is a partner in the VITAL Consortium, and through EFPIA, contributes to Work Package 4.
