Over the past 2 years, the COVID-19 pandemic has forced us to face the reality that we are now living in a new era, one that is impacting all aspects of our lives, including our healthcare priorities. Within this context, it’s essential that we identify the emerging vaccine barriers (COVID, Influenza, Meningococcal amongst others) to increase vaccination rates across the life course.
The Healthcare Community and Policymakers must address the new and emerging immunisation challenges before they become insurmountable. By bringing together the key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers EIP are constantly working on what needs to change and what activities need to happen to support the desired change.
The 6 Working Groups formed so far are tasked with identifying established and emerging barriers to vaccine uptake and advising on the most suitable policy changes and action plans that will bring about immediate improvements to vaccine uptake and coverage. Current Working Groups include:
  • LIFE COURSE VACCINATIONS (including the Vaccinations in Pregnancy Group)
  • COVID VACCINES & VACCINE CONFIDENCE
  • INFLUENZA VACCINATIONS
  • RESPIRATORY SYNCYTIAL VIRUS (RSV) PREVENTION
  • MENINGOCOCCAL VACCINES
  • ADOLESCENT VACCINES
Join us in our work and take part in the 7th Life Course Immunisation Summit in December 2022.
