Adult Vaccination Advocacy Toolkit – AVAT
The Adult Vaccination Advocacy Toolkit is supported by an unrestricted grant by Pfizer Global.
Vaccination is a simple, safe, and effective way of protecting people against harmful infectious diseases and is a key component of healthy ageing. Yet globally, rates of adult vaccination are suboptimal.
The Adult Vaccination Advocacy Toolkit responds to an urgent call from stakeholders and advocacy groups to influence and shape adult vaccination policy. The Toolkit is a collection of authoritative and adaptable resources designed around four key policy issues: vaccine pathways, expansion of the pool of vaccine administrators, effective targeted adult vaccination campaigns, and an environment that strives for vaccination equality.
Be part of a global community that comes together to improve adult vaccination uptake rates. Join us and become a global advocate for adult vaccination!
AVAT Toolkit – Banners
The IFA has created the following toolkit banners to help organizations for older adults share impactful information to their members.
- I. Vaccination Pathways
- II. Vaccine Administrators
- III. Targeted Public Health Messages
- IV. Equity in Vaccination
We must create an environment that informs, simplifies, and streamlines the step-by-step process for individuals and populations to be vaccinated
Part of any national immunization plan is to have an adequate supply of qualified vaccinators in relation to the nature and density of the population.
Targeted public health messages on vaccinations are vital to building and maintaining a healthy society.
Understanding and executing the steps to address situational and societal barriers reflecting social determinants of health (SDH) is crucial to reducing immunization inequities amongst older persons.
AVAT Webinar 1:
Empowering civil society to address policies that constitute barriers for improving adult vaccination rates.
To launch of the Adult Vaccination Advocacy Toolkit the International Federation on Ageing was pleased to host the webinar “Empowering civil society to address policies that constitute barriers for improving adult vaccination rates.”
The goal of this webinar is to empower civil society to take action to advocate for changes in these policies to create a world of healthy older people whose rights to safe and appropriate vaccines are protected and respected through programs that hold high the principles of prevention, access, and equity.
