The Coalition for Vaccination calls to get vaccinated against COVID-19Comments Off on The Coalition for Vaccination calls to get vaccinated against COVID-19

On 9 February 2021, the Coalition for Vaccination published a manifesto to encourage healthcare professionals to get vaccinated against COVID-19.

The manifesto highlights three key reasons why all healthcare professionals should get vaccinated against COVID-19 when they have the opportunity to do so and why they should help promote the vaccination against COVID-19 among the general public.

  1. You protect yourself from illness and possible severe or life-threatening complications
  2. COVID-19 vaccines are safe and effective
  3. You help safeguard healthcare capacity

The Coalition for Vaccination brings together European associations of healthcare professionals and relevant students’ associations in the field, as well as associated professional organisations working in the field of public health and immunisation. It was convened by the European Commission in 2019 to deliver accurate information to the public, to combat myths and to exchange best practices. The Coalition is co-led by the Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME), the European Federation of Nurses Associations (EFN) and the Pharmaceutical Group of the European Union (PGEU).
