Sustaining Vaccine Confidence in the 21st Century.

Hardt K, Schmidt-Ott R, Glismann S, Adegbola RA, Meurice FP - Vaccines (Basel) (2013)

Bottom Line: Factors associated with improved public confidence in vaccines include evidence-based decision-making procedures and recommendations, controlled processes for licensing and monitoring vaccine safety and effectiveness and disease surveillance.Vaccine safety/quality issues should be handled rapidly and transparently by informing and involving those most affected and those concerned with public health in effective ways.Vaccine confidence can be improved through collaborations that ensure high vaccine uptake rates and that inform the public and other stakeholders of the benefits of vaccines and how vaccine safety is constantly assessed, assured and communicated.

ABSTRACT
Vaccination provides many health and economic benefits to individuals and society, and public support for immunization programs is generally high. However, the benefits of vaccines are often not fully valued when public discussions on vaccine safety, quality or efficacy arise, and the spread of misinformation via the internet and other media has the potential to undermine immunization programs. Factors associated with improved public confidence in vaccines include evidence-based decision-making procedures and recommendations, controlled processes for licensing and monitoring vaccine safety and effectiveness and disease surveillance. Community engagement with appropriate communication approaches for each audience is a key factor in building trust in vaccines. Vaccine safety/quality issues should be handled rapidly and transparently by informing and involving those most affected and those concerned with public health in effective ways. Openness and transparency in the exchange of information between industry and other stakeholders is also important. To maximize the safety of vaccines, and thus sustain trust in vaccines, partnerships are needed between public health sector stakeholders. Vaccine confidence can be improved through collaborations that ensure high vaccine uptake rates and that inform the public and other stakeholders of the benefits of vaccines and how vaccine safety is constantly assessed, assured and communicated.

Mentions: However, knowledge of these safeguards is not sufficient to maintain the long-term success of immunization programs. The development of effective benefit-risk communication messages to build public trust is not straightforward, requiring input from many vaccination stakeholders. In this review, we describe the systems designed to guide and regulate vaccine development and to monitor safety and efficacy. We explore the factors involved in informing the public and others of the benefits and risks of vaccines to sustain trust in immunization programs, as well as the collaboration of different public health sector partners needed to fulfil the various roles outlined in Figure 1.
