Influenza vaccination coverage

Information on vaccination coverage rates by country in the European Union (EU) and the European Economic Area (EEA) of different risk- and target groups in the 2012/13 season have been published on the ECDC website and a technical report Seasonal Influenza Vaccination in Europe, 2007-2008 to 2014-2015 describes the uptake of influenza vaccines measured in eight influenza seasons and collected by the VENICE network.

Policies and vaccination coverage for seasonal and pandemic vaccines in the EU/EEA have previously also been described in the scientific literature based on technical reports provided to ECDC from the VENICE network:

  • Mereckiene et al Seasonal influenza immunisation in Europe. Overview of recommendations and vaccination coverage for three seasons: pre-pandemic (2008/09), pandemic (2009/10) and post-pandemic (2010/11)
  • Jorgensen et al Unequal access to vaccines in the WHO European Region during the A(H1N1) influenza pandemic in 2009
  • Kanitz et al Variation in adult vaccination policies across Europe: an overview from the VENICE network on vaccine recommendations, funding and coverage
  • Mereckiene et al Influenza A(H1N1)pdm09 vaccination policies and coverage in Europe
