We have received a number of questions about the European Commission's position on vaccination programmes in Member States of the EU. This is our reply: 

  • The European Commission stresses the importance of vaccination programmes for the protection of public health. 
  • To date, vaccine coverage remains high in the EU. However, we are very concerned by the rise in vaccine scepticism. 
  • Vaccination is the responsibility of each Member State of the EU. The European Commission therefore works together with Member States to raise awareness on the importance of vaccination and of the possible consequences if vaccination is not done.
