Assises européennes du Vaccin 2018
On November 20th, Institut Choiseul organised the European Vaccination Conference at the Institut Pasteur in Paris which brought together all the vaccination stakeholders, in a national and European context of debates to talk about the reinforcement of the efficiency of vaccination policies.
The event was opened by Vytenis Andriukaitis Commissioner for Health and Food Safety at the European Commission and gave the opportunity to discuss two major French and European issues :
- The need for an innovative and flexible vaccination ecosystem in order to achieve a better match between supply and demand of vaccines over the long run.
- The need for robust electronic immunisation information systems, which are at the very heart ofvaccination programmes’ effectiveness.
Genevieve Chene presented how the EU-JAV will address these questions and strengthen cooperation at the European level to fight vaccine-preventable diseases.
