Why and how should we prioritize marginalized communities in the rollout of COVID-19 vaccines in Europe?

25 March 2021

16:00-17:00 CET


Public health means protection of the population as a whole and health for all. It is not only a question of fairness, but also failure to vaccinate certain social groups, who are often more susceptible because of pre-existing health conditions or their living environment, has repercussions for the rest of the community. 

Our panelists explored how national governments and the European Commission can ensure that EU guidelines and national COVID-19 vaccination plans turn equitable access to vaccination into a tangible reality for all in Europe.
