For these meetings, the Adult Immunization Board – led by the University of Antwerp and University of Florence - inviteslocal academics, health care professionals, public health representatives and policy makers to present on adult immunization strategies implemented in the country, as well as educational and communicative initiatives aimed at increasing adult vaccine acceptance and coverage rates.
