Toolbox of communication and community engagement resources to increase vaccine uptake

The toolbox provides videos, factsheets, communication materials and other documents to help health professionals and health authorities raise awareness about the importance of vaccination and increase vaccine uptake. The tools address a variety of population groups, and focus on different vaccine-preventable diseases. The toolbox focuses primarily on four countries (Greece, Italy, Latvia and Romania), but also includes resources developed by international actors, and is expanding to include more countries.

Tools can be filtered according to language, disease, target audience (e.g., which population groups the tools focus on), and document type. These filters can be used alone, or in combination. A keyword search is also possible.

Contribute to the toolbox!

The toolbox of resources to increase vaccine uptake is continuously updated with new resources. If you would like to submit a tool to be included, please complete the form below. We will check whether the tool meets the guidelines for inclusion in the toolbox and get in touch to let you know. Please contact us if you have any questions or would like more information.

Background: research on vaccine hesitancy factors in four EU Member States

The development of the toolboxes is supported by a reference grid analysing vaccine hesitancy factors in four EU countries (Greece, Italy, Latvia, Romania), which are the initial countries of focus for the tools. The process underlying the development of the grid is described in a report, which also provides an overview of the key results (“Full report”). Two separate grids were constructed: the first analyses peer-reviewed articles (“First grid”), and the second grey literature (“Second grid”). An Annex describes the extraction files used to fill in the first grid (“Annex”). All four documents are available to consult here.
