      This year's European Immunization Week takes place from 24 - 30 April 2017. 
      Below is an overview of the EIW 2017 events in different countries. This list will be updated on an ongoing basis.  Currently the list includes: Austria, Belgium, Germany, Irland, Netherlands, Poland, Ukraine and United Kingdom.
       
      Austria
      Styria state: Measles immunization campaign in schools focused on students and teachers
      Statement by the European Academy of Paediatrics in the European Journal of Paediatrics
      Austria - Innsbruck
      The Austrian Medical Student's Association is currently working on activities regarding the European Immunization Week 2017. We are trying to find different approaches to this topic. We want to reach parents, teenager, health care workers, medical students, as well as refugees.
      Plan so far:
      Teddybearhospital: The Teddybearhospital will take place in the first week of april in Innsbruck. Little children come with their teddybears into the hospital, often accompanied by their parents. There will be an info-booth about vaccination. Social Media Campaign: We want to create a Pro-Vaccination movement on the Internet for this week in April. People will change their profile picture on facebook or post on twitter or instagram along with a fact about immunization. This will be a national campaign, we also want to work together with medical students from Denmark, Ireland and the Netherlands. Pannel discussion: We are working together with the European Law Students Association Innsbruck. We want to discuss topics like the current situation of immunization in Austria, as well as solutions and new approaches. Information evening for healthcare-workers and medical students on how to approach vaccination scepticals. We will visit homes for refugees to give information about vaccination and maybe give them a possibility to get vaccinated. We are also planning on going in schools, to make workshops about immunization. Topics will be: How does vaccination work ? What are the achievements? Why is it important to vaccinate? Who is at risk, if there is an immunization gap ? Our focus will be on measles, as well as HPV.
      Belgium (European Commission)
      DG SANTE will organise a workshop on vaccination, 26-27 April 2017 in Brussels.
      The aim of this two half-days meeting is to address key challenges of Member States in the field of vaccination looking into ways to support them at EU level. Involving both public health authorities and competent regulatory authorities the discussion will focus on the identification of EU-wide actions bringing added value towards higher vaccine acceptance, security of access and availability of vaccines, and supporting Member States to develop and implement comprehensive vaccination programmes. The findings of this workshop will feed into a discussion at political level in the 2nd Semester 2017.
       
      Germany
      "Deutschland sucht den Impfpass" campaign (http://www.impfen-info.de/impfpass/)
      Information material available for public health authorities, schools etc. (http://www.impfen-info.de/mediathek/printmaterialien/)
       
      Ireland
      @VaccinesToday plans to to launch the first in a series of animated videos about life-long immunisation. The preliminary idea - which we will begin developing this month - is to introduce the public to a family and then to have individual 'episodes' to explain some of the vaccine-preventable diseases that affect each. This will also give us a chance to show how protecting one family member from infection could help protect others.
