VAC4EU: VACCINE MONITORING COLLABORATION FOR EUROPE

In Europe, most of the monitoring of vaccine coverage, benefit and risk is done nationally. Collaboration and sharing of data increase the capacity to quantify risks and benefits, allow comparisons between product brands and vaccination strategies, and promote knowledge sharing.

VAC4EU is a non-for-profit international association registered in Belgium.

VAC4EU vision is best scientific evidence on vaccine coverage, benefits and risks in Europe to support data-driven decision making. The mission of VAC4EU is to access, characterize and analyze available and newly collected health data to allow for evidence-based decisions by people, who need to either regulate, advise, prescribe or decide on vaccines (https://vac4eu.org)

What is your solution?

VAC4EU is offering:

  1. Ability to estimate coverage, effectiveness and safety of different vaccine products and schedules within and across European member states;
  2. Increased power to monitor rare safety events;
  3. Combining expertise and capacity to run studies more efficiently across member states;
  4. Use comparable near real time monitoring systems within and across member states to have most up to date information on vaccines;
  5. access to a network of scientists with recognized expertise on vaccine, yet offering flexible and rapid reaction;
  6. access to European data on roughly 100 million vaccinated people.

What is the targeted segment, and how does it work?

VAC4EU targeted segment is rather large in the sense that VAC4EU answers to calls from either:

  • Organization such as EMA opening calls on vaccine studies
  • Organization such as ECDC opening calls on vaccine studies
  • Vaccine manufacturer companies (from small, medium to large companies) looking for partner ready to conduct vaccine studies
  • European or national authorities opening calls on vaccine studies

VAC4EU will also assure:

  • Training course on vaccine and vaccine benefit/risk
  • Vaccine information to the authorities to support them in decision-making

How does it work?

VAC4EU today is composed of 22 organization-members distributed amongst the member-states composed of national institutes of public health, universities, research institutes. VAC4EU informs its members on requested studies and look for creating a study consortium based on available human resources, experience and willingness of the member to conduct the study. VAC4EU offers an administrative support and assures that the study is efficiently conducted.

Why is the solution better than the status quo?

No such organization as VAC4EI exists in Europe. The pandemic influenza crisis in 2009-10 and the new European pharmacovigilance legislation have changed how vaccine post-marketing monitoring should be done in Europe. It demonstrated the need for collaboration, in par: ticular, between public and private organizations, to sustain or improve some aspects of the post-marketing surveillance.

VAC4EU is precisely answering to the special need through its network and the number of highly skilled scientists who can provide the best scientific evidence on the benefit/risk of vaccination.
