Taking stock of vaccination in Europe

on Sat, 12/01/2012 - 12:15

Two important conferences has been dedicated to review the state of art of vaccinations in Europe. The first of them was organized by the Executive Agency for Health and Consumers (Each) in Luxembourg, on October 15th-16th and whose main question was “Why is it important to be vaccinated?” During the course of the conference, there has been the presentation of the Venice (Vaccine European New Integrated Collaboration Effort) project, aimed to establish an European network dedicated to vaccinations, and the Promovax (Promote Vaccination among Migrants Populations in Europe) project, which was focused on vaccinations amongst the European migrant populations.
The second conference immediately followed the first on, always in Luxembourg: the Conference on childhood immunization, organized by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Health and Consumer on October 16th-17th, discussed the recent initiatives on childhood immunisation taken by the European Union, including the follow-up to the Council conclusions on childhood immunisation adopted in June 2011.
