Alongside regular exercise, enjoying a varied diet and avoiding tobacco, immunisation is a tried, tested and effective means of staying healthy throughout the life course and a key component of healthy ageing. However, the uptake of adult immunisation is not consistent across the UK, and adults in at-risk groups may not necessarily know or ask about vaccination.
At a launch reception alongside the 72nd World Health Assembly in Geneva last week, the International Longevity Centre UK (ILC-UK) launched an international programme of work, which seeks to reshape the debate around prevention and to promote preventative interventions right across the life course.
As the fourth webinar of the International Federation on Ageing (IFA) Post-Conference Education Webinar Series, this interactive presentation discusses the adult vaccination work of governments and NGOs, as well as the use of technology in promoting or hindering uptake rates of adult vaccination.
A new report launched by the International Longevity Centre UK today, finds that through the use of big data, the sharing economy and AI amongst others, technology could play a major role in overcoming some of the barriers to the uptake of adult vaccinations.
