European Commission proposes Council Recommendation on Strengthened Cooperation against Vaccine Preventable Diseases

In April 2018, the European Commission proposed a (non-binding) Council Recommendation through which it hopes to reduce vaccine-preventable disease across the European Union. Although the EU member states are in charge of their vaccination policies, the Commission hopes to strengthen their cooperation in order to tackle vaccine hesitancy, improve coordination on vaccine procurement, support research and innovation, and strengthen overall cooperation on vaccine preventable diseases.
