The European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) has commissioned ASPHER to conduct a training needs assessment in the areas of vaccinology and vaccine acceptance with the aim of collecting information useful to develop training courses on these topics. This assessment targets frontline health workers and public health professionals involved in immunisation programmes in EU/EEA. It is a web-based questionnaire and includes questions on knowledge, learning needs, and attendance to existing courses in the areas of vaccinology and vaccine acceptance including COVID-19.
ASPHER on behalf of ECDC invites European frontline health workers and public health professionals involved in immunisation to participate by completing an online survey. The survey is implemented in Survey Monkey and it takes about 20-30 minutes to complete. Participation is voluntary and anonymous, no personal data will be collected.
We would like to ask for your support in disseminating the questionnaire to your network and colleagues who are involved in immunisation programmes. You can find the information about the project, background and the survey in the linked document. You are also welcome to complete the survey yourself.

Please note that the survey will be open until Tuesday 23rd of November.
We greatly appreciate receiving your response to the survey and your help in distributing it.
