The International Federation on Ageing (IFA) have released a new report “Changing the Conversation on Adult Influenza Vaccination” on the status of influenza campaigns focused on the most vulnerable members of our population – older adults and those with underlying chronic conditions.
“Governments and other stakeholders must take urgent action to ensure equity in access to disease prevention measures, which includes greater investment in vaccines and vaccination services by community pharmacists.” So said the International Pharmaceutical Federation (FIP) in a call to action made today at the start of a new FIP Digital Programme to transform vaccination globally and regionally.
Responding to positive news in relation to the development of a COVID-19 vaccination. David Sinclair, Director of the International Longevity Centre – UK said:
“While the progress in the development of a COVID vaccine will be a relief to many reading the news today, this is not the time to be complacent.”
Immunisation For All Ages argues that preventative interventions, such as existing vaccines need to be at the forefront of public health initiatives to support health systems form COVID-19 pressures.
When flu season comes, there is a possibility that the world will be dealing with two respiratory viruses at the same time – flu and COVID-19. This could be a double challenge for health care systems worldwide. On 2 July ESWI will be hosting its fourth webinar in a series: Cornerstones of pandemic preparedness and urgent actions.
