UEMO’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign — It’s never too late

After two years, the COVID-19 pandemic seems to be waning but the EU and national governments are still urging the population to bet on prevention and get vaccinated. UEMO has been on the frontline since the onset of the pandemic and we believe that vaccination will protect not only you, but everyone around you. For the countless cases of people who were infected, even after being inoculated, the evidence is there to support vaccines greatly reduce harsh symptoms and ultimately, hospitalizations in ICU. For that reason, UEMO continues to spread the word about the benefits of being vaccinated and stressing how it can prevent healthcare systems from being overwhelmed.

Also important, as the SARS CoV-2 virus mutates and new variants emerge, it’s important to keep up with how well the vaccines are performing, but it’s also a daunting task, given the flood of information (and misinformation) coming at us from so many directions. The acceptance and uptake of the vaccines by the population is the key to a successful COVID-19 vaccination programme. Barriers to uptake need to be identified and there is a need to understand and properly address individuals’ and communities’ beliefs, concerns and expectations regarding the vaccines and the disease.
