Vaccination in Europe

An EASAC and FEAM commentary on the EC Roadmap ‘Strengthened cooperation against vaccine preventable diseases’

The European Commission (EC) Roadmap document ‘Strengthened cooperation against vaccine preventable diseases’ that was issued recently, aims to inform EU citizens and stakeholders about the ideas of the Commission regarding the current challenges of vaccination programmes (i.e. declining coverage, supply shortages and growing vaccination hesitancy1). The Commission invites stakeholders to give feedback and to participate effectively in the consultation activities. Since EASAC, the European Academies Science Advisory Council, and FEAM, the Federation of European Academies of Medicine, consider science-for-policy advice on vaccination to belong to their core activities, the two organisations are keen to take this opportunity to provide joint comments on the Roadmap document.
