Eurovaccine 2009, the first European conference on vaccination and immunisation organised and fully funded by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) was held in Stockholm, Sweden, on 11 December 2009.
Topics addressed during the one-day conference included implementation of the Pandemic H1N1 vaccination and strategies for measles elimination in Europe. The conference was webcasted live, thus allowing for a broad international audience to follow the presentations and participate in the discussions. The video stream of Eurovaccine 2009, as well as the posters presented during the conference’s virtual poster session, will be available on demand for a period of > 6 months after the conference.
Eurovaccine focused on vaccination programmes, providing a platform for information and practice exchange between professionals working in the fields of regulation, policy, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of immunisation activities in European countries. The next ECDC Eurovaccine conference will take place in 2010.
