World Coalition on Adult Vaccination

World Coalition on Adult Vaccination

About the coalition

Vaccination is one of the most successful public health practices in history and is considered a pivotal advancement in modern medicine.  Older adults and those with chronic medical conditions are a rapidly growing global population at high risk of life-altering complications from vaccine-preventable diseases (VPDs).

Vaccines are critical to the prevention and control of many VPDs, across all ages, and therefore underpin global health security.  Immunisation throughout the life course is an effective public health intervention, that not only contributes to maintaining and improving population health across all ages but reduces the burden on healthcare professionals and systems.

Vaccine4Life (V4L), through the World Coalition on Adult Vaccination, calls on all champions and advocates representing constituents in the fields of health, ageing, chronic disease, public health, social justice, and inter-generational solidarity, among many others, to embrace the narrative of a life course approach to vaccination.


The World Coalition on Adult Vaccination is made up of non-governmental organizations and academia, clinicians, public health and scientific experts and associations worldwide collaborating on a common agenda around a life course approach to vaccination, with special attention to later life.


Through the coalition, the purpose is to mobilize experts and their networks to help influence and shape policies to improve the uptake rates of adult vaccinations through prioritizing prevention, improving access, and reducing inequity.
