On 30 September 2019, the Vaccines Working Group of the One Health Platform will organize a one-day meeting at the Natural History Museum of Berlin in Germany, which will serve as the formal launch of the Group. The theme of the meeting will be “the benefits of vaccination to mankind: past, present and future”.
The programme will focus on specific examples showcasing the benefits that vaccination has brought/might bring to mankind. In its entirety, the programme will address successful vaccination strategies in the past and discuss challenges in the present and the future. A panel of experts will address vaccination hesitancy from different angles, including risk communication of vaccines.
The VWG will specifically aim at strengthening the ties with vaccination advocates worldwide, many of whom are courageous yet often solitary voices. These advocates will be invited to the Berlin launch meeting, together with press members interested in the subject. Participation is targeted at a maximum of 60 pax, including members of the press.
