Vaccination is one of the most important cost-effective public health interventions, with a traditional focus on children, is both underutilized and undervalued.  While there is a solid understanding of the current global policy environment regarding the health, and social and economic benefits of vaccines there are serious inequities within and across countries related to optimal use of vaccines throughout each stage of life.

The COVID-19 pandemic has fundamentally shifted the global awareness of the devastating impact of vaccine-preventable diseases.  The Vaccines4Life Summit provides a critical point of connection to be informed, to share learnings and to be part of a multisectoral force to take collective action toward integrating effective immunization policies within primary and long-term care settings, aligned with the UN Decade of Healthy Ageing 2021-2030 and the WHO Immunization Agenda 2030: A Global Strategy To Leave No One Behind.

Vaccine Safety for Older Adults | 60 Second Fact Check Videos’ Campaign

The rise of mass communication and risk of misinformation on the safety and effectiveness of vaccines is a key factor influencing the suboptimal rates of adult vaccination.  It is vital for civil society to have equitable access to sources of accurate information based on the best science.

Building awareness, knowledge and translating this into improved messaging on vaccine safety requires collaboration among physicians, public health officials, governments, and civil society to ensure older persons, especially those with complex health needs, make an informed decision about vaccination and their health and wellbeing.

IFAs ‘Vaccine Safety for Older Adults | 60 Second Fact Check Videos’ campaign aims to increase awareness of the safety and effectiveness of vaccines, reduce vaccine hesitancy, improve equity, and build trust within some of the most at risk populations.   

Public health experts, thought leaders and global influencers within the field of adult immunization and ageing share their perspective in order to strengthen and expand accurate, reliable and meaningful information on the proven success of vaccines that protect older persons and those with chronic conditions against life altering diseases.
