In this webinar, expert speakers from ILC-UK, Johns Hopkins University, and the Global Coalition on Aging explored what we are learning from the experience of older adults in COVID-19 about how health ecosystems – from the central healthcare system to care settings, caregivers, employers, and individuals – all must adapt to the needs of an ageing society, both during the pandemic and beyond.

Yet still… • WHO guideline for adult immunisation uptake in member countries: 75% • WHO guideline for childhood immunisation uptake in member countries: 90% “I think primary care works really well for kids, we’ve got it ingrained in our heads to go take our kids to the GP but I just don’ t think it’s working in an adult space.”

Editor's Notes

  • 1 Making prevention convenient
    Tailoring prevention
    Addressing ageism
    2 Communicating the importance of prevention
    Changing the message
    Training and equipping professionals
    3 Using data to improve take-up
    Empowering patients
    Addressing barriers to use
  • As has been shown all too starkly by the current coronavirus pandemic.
    Unprecedented times:
    Could raise awareness around vaccination
    But at the same time, given the current lockdown measures, lots of people will have been missed. And more important than ever to follow up on this and don’t let it slip
  • Thanks
    We’re doing phase 2 of our Prevention in an ageing world programme
    Get in touch if you want to find out more or get involved
  • We have an actively engaged network of experts, policy makers and practitioners, including long standing relations with UCL; our first partner
  • COVID-19 for older adults will require many strategies, including immunization. To date, immunization has not been prominently placed on the global agenda. Additional attention is needed for this issue and we believe this is an issue we will all need to get around to address COVID-19. Watch in the coming months for a roadmap to action. It is an important issue we hope you can all get around.
