People experiencing homelessness are extremely vulnerable in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic. It is important that targeted and effective vaccination strategies ensure equitable access to vaccines for the most vulnerable.
FEANTSA held a webinar on 27 April 10h - 11h30 to learn about examples of COVID-19 vaccination campaigns for people experiencing homelessness across Europe.
The aim of the webinar was to share experience in drawing up vaccination campaign plans and lessons learnt about vaccination delivered so far for people experiencing homelessness. Presentations are available in the download section of this webpage.
