A call to action for global, European and national stakeholders and governments to strengthen pandemic preparedness and responsiveness by taking a life- course immunization (LCI) approach which will expand access to vaccines, improve uptake, and ensure optimal protection of all populations. Life-course immunization can contribute to healthier, more productive, and longer lives, which enhances the sustainability of healthcare systems.
With the COVID-19 vaccine rollout throughout Europe and the world, we’ve reached a key milestone in the fight against the pandemic. Nevertheless, routine vaccinations remain an essential part of protecting people’s health, and it’s hugely important to continue with them.
To emphasise this message, the Routine Life-course Immunisation campaign launched on the 11th of February, with a Call to Action to governments and global, European and national stakeholders.
EFPC has endorsed this Call.
