Service Contract to Identify Obstacles to Vaccination of Physical, Practical or Administrative Nature and Develop Recommendations
Dear EU-JAV Partners,
For your information, on 11 January 2022, HaDEA ( European Health and Digital Executive Agency) published a call for tenders, by means of which the Commission wants to explore to what extent physical obstacles to vaccination has a negative impact on vaccination coverage rates, identify best practices to overcome such obstacles, and pilot such best practices in volunteering Member States.
For the Commission, this is an interesting call for tenders, not the least in light of the current rollout of COVID-19 vaccines, but not only, as this is a call for tenders on vaccination in general. Many studies have been/are looking into people’s perceptions of vaccines and how this can lead to suboptimal coverage rates. There is less understanding of how – and to what extent – structural barriers to vaccination have an impact on the uptake, and how such barriers can be addressed. This is want we want to explore now.
