In response to recent trends of declining pediatric vaccination rates across Europe, the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute, with support from Pfizer, conducted an online survey of pediatric healthcare providers (HCPs) and civic, advocacy and HCP stakeholder organizations, that aimed to uncover barriers and potential solutions to better prioritize routine pediatric immunization in Europe.
European Stakeholder Survey Results
In October 2022, Pfizer and the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute (EIP) surveyed EIP’s network along with relevant civic, advocacy, and HCP organizations across Europe to uncover barriers and identify solutions to making routine pediatric immunization a priority. The quantitative, closed-ended questionnaire focused on routine pediatric immunizations in Europe, with COVID-19 vaccinations excluded from the survey. The survey received 106 valid and completed responses between October 6-21.
The online survey revealed key challenges to pediatric vaccination, most-concerning infectious diseases, most-credible messengers, and most-compelling message themes to drive urgency around pediatric vaccination in Europe. Explore the detailed findings from the survey conducted by the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute, with support from Pfizer.
