Coalition for Vaccination brings together European associations of healthcare professionals and relevant student associations in the field. It was convened by the European Commission in 2019. The Coalition aims to support delivering accurate information to the public, combating myths around vaccines and vaccination, and exchanging best practices on vaccination.

On 18 October 2021, the Coalition launched a campaign on influenza vaccination with a statement. Please find the campaign materials for your use here.

Earlier in 2021, the Coalition launched a manifesto calling on healthcare professionals to get vaccinated against COVID-19. In 2020, the Coalition ran another advocacy campaign to promote the uptake of vaccines among health professionals and their patients. The campaigns have been launched across Europe simultaneously with the European Immunization Week and the Flu Awareness Week.
