Dear Members,

We are pleased to share with you that the PGEU Statement on Flu Vaccination 2021 – 2022 has been published.

To mitigate the anticipated negative impact of the upcoming influenza season on citizens’ health and healthcare systems, PGEU calls on European, national and regional health authorities to:

  • Secure sufficient flu vaccination uptake and trust by deploying adequate information campaigns and calls for vaccination which structurally involve healthcare professionals as trusted sources for the public.
  • Strengthen collaboration with community pharmacists and pharmacy organisations as key partners to help increasing trust in vaccines, fighting vaccine hesitancy and achieving higher uptake overall within local communities.
  • Ensure high accessibility and convenience to flu vaccination by broadening opportunities for vaccination through the structural use of the widely accessible network of pharmacies where appropriate and guaranteeing an adequate supply of vaccines to the needs of the population.

We would like to thank you once again for your support on this.

Best regards,

The PGEU Secretariat
