V4L Summit: Beyond the Pandemic: Driving Policy to Improve Adult Immunization Rates

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.
