Friday 10 November, CCD, Liffey Hall 2, 12:50 – 13:50. By adopting a life course approach to immunization, vaccination programs can be tailored to close immunity gaps at different stages of life. Promoting policies that support immunization across the life-course, rather than restricting it to childhood, has the potential to benefit individual and population health, promote healthy aging and support the long-term sustainability of health systems through reduced healthcare costs. Join us in the lunch symposium on Life course immunisation: protecting public health,. Grab your lunch and join the discussion. Our speakers will discuss how life course immunisation plays a significant role .in combatting infectious diseases and the impact this has on public health.
