The EU has had on average low coverage rates for influenza vaccination compared to the WHO 75% target for at-risk groups and health professionals, which was acknowledged as an EU target in the 2009 Council Recommendation on seasonal influenza vaccination. While a few countries are close to reaching the target, coverage rates in others are as low as below 20%, bringing the average figure to 44.3% in Europe. While several European countries took additional measures to try to mitigate the risks of a severe influenza season this winter, which should be highlighted as best practices going forward, the lack of a timely monitoring system of influenza vaccination coverage rates in Europe is making surveillance and progress tracking very difficult. The Steering Group on Influenza Vaccination – in which is officially involved also Active Citizenship Network - is inviting EU and Member State stakeholders to join the third annual EU Flu Day to raise awareness on the need for better protection against seasonal influenza for European citizens and health systems.
The initiative will bring together key policymakers, researchers, and advocacy organizations with the goal to advance the discussion on how the NCD Initiative can help empower Member States to take decisive action to ensure better pathways for stroke patients, whilst ensuring early prevention measures are scaled up. Invitees can join either via Zoom or in person at the Thon Hotel EU, Rue de la Loi 75, Brussels.
