Public health guidance on varicella vaccination in the European Union
The Vaccine Preventable Diseases programme of ECDC has set up a working group to provide guidance to the European Union Member States on the potential introduction of varicella vaccination. The aim of the final report is to support EU Member States in their national decision-making process with regard to childhood varicella vaccination.
In line with ECDC’s commitment to openness and transparency, and in order to receive comments from the scientific community and stakeholders, ECDC is launching a public consultation on the preliminary guidance report “Varicella vaccination in the European Union”.
