YOUNG COALITION FOR PREVENTION AND VACCINATION

Back in 2019, ThinkYoung built the Young Coalition for Prevention and Vaccination (YC4PV) composed of 35 young healthcare professionals from more than 20 EU countries.

Vaccines are offering a solution in a time of crisis, but vaccine hesitancy is alarmingly present across Europe. We must induce sustainable behaviour change to ensure vaccines become a social norm and with young people already taking the lead for a healthier future we believe that youth can drive this change.

 

That’s why in January 2019, ThinkYoung built the Young Coalition for Prevention and Vaccination (YC4PV) composed of young health professionals with more than 20 nationalities, either engaged in healthcare or in health policy. The YC4PV is taking a proactive stance to advocate the important role of vaccination and prevention across Europe, both at the EU and national level.

RESEARCH

The COVID-19 pandemic has had severe and lasting implications with the crisis that poses a considerable risk to young people. At ThinkYoung we delved deeper into the concerns and difficulties facing young healthcare professionals during a time of crisis. Our research shows that 67% of participants want a ‘healthy recovery’ instead of a ‘return to normal’.

In 2017, ThinkYoung conducted a research on Youth Vaccine Perception which was designed to investigate the awareness level of vaccination among young Europeans. Our research revealed that only the 65% of the young people interviewed considered the benefits of vaccination to outweigh the risks.
