‘The number of measles cases in Europe has risen considerably in recent years. Experts say parents and health professionals have grown complacent and underestimate the risk of vaccine-preventable diseases, but the WHO believes measles can be eliminated in Europe if immunisation rates improve.’

Vaccination-cafeIn this video discussion, Dr Dina Pfeifer of the World Health Organization Regional Office for Europe, and Dr Uwe Ehrentreich, a consultant paediatrician, address the factors behind Europe’s measles problem and discuss ways to improve vaccination uptake.

This is the first in our new Vaccination Café series of conversations about vaccine-preventable diseases.
