Better vaccination systems for migrants needed, following vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks data

A new study, published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases, finds that migrant communities may be an under-immunized group in Europe that have been affected by vaccine-preventable disease outbreaks—including measles, chicken pox and hepatitis A. The results point to a need for improved health and vaccination systems to provide better care for migrant populations and ensure they have meaningful access to appropriate catch-up vaccination services after arrival in Europe, findings which have direct implications for COVID-19 vaccine roll out in the European region.
