Active Citizens in Europe advocate for vaccination

Action plan to improve the awareness on vaccine benefit across Europe

Active Citizenship Network strongly believe that vaccination is a right and an extraordinary tool of public health, which must be known, valued, spread and used in the interests of individuals and the community. However, it is necessary to work and contribute to a proper vaccine culture. In addition, it is necessary to ensure rigor and transparency, in order to recover confidence in science.

For this reasons, after the successful event “The challenges of life-course vaccination to enhance public health protection in Europe: a multi-stakeholder approach", ACN will organize a new public event to reflect, in a multi-stakeholder environment, on the commitment of EU Institutions to the topic and to produce a proposal of positioning to strengthen the cooperation among all relevant actors. It would contribute to a more integrated policies cooperation to the theme, avoiding any silos approach.


The challenges of life-course vaccination to enhance public health protection in Europe: a multi-stakeholder approach.
