Coalition for Vaccination

The Coalition for Vaccination brings together European associations of healthcare professionals and relevant student associations in the field. It was convened by the European Commission in 2019 based on the 2018 Council recommendation on strengthened cooperation against vaccine-preventable diseases

The Coalition aims to support delivering accurate information to the public, combating myths around vaccines and vaccination, and exchanging best practices on vaccination. Healthcare professionals’ role is to reassure people that vaccines are safe and effective. 

What we do

Communication materials are created and distributed in order to raise awareness, fight minsinformation, and contribute to increasing vaccine uptake. 

The Coalition is organising advocacy campaigns to promote the uptake of routine vaccination, including flu vaccines, among health professionals, but also to urge them to get vaccinated against COVID-19.
