State of Vaccine Confidence in the EU and the UK (2020)

Overall confidence in vaccination in the EU+UK is high in 2020, both among the public and healthcare professionals. Moreover, confidence in the importance and safety of the MMR and seasonal influenza vaccines has increased markedly in a large number of countries. The State of Vaccine Confidence in the EU in 2020 report reveals that countries can undergo significant changes in vaccine confidence in short periods of time, highlighting the importance of continuous monitoring of vaccine confidence to allow rapid responses to address waning confidence and mitigate damaging effects on vaccination uptake.

Vaccine confidence is particularly important in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. Although perceptions towards a novel COVID-19 vaccine are not explored, this study highlights countries and socio-economic groups with relatively low confidence in vaccines that may require targeted attention to confidence building.
