    Vaccination against COVID-19 in Serbia and EU countries

    Immunisation for the coronavirus will undoubtedly mark the year ahead. Public discourse research in Serbia, throughout Europe and the rest of the world, convey that the management of the pandemic led to increased public distrust of government institutions. Eventually, this led to a considerable amount of suspicion in the vaccines against the COVID-19. According to the latest research, only 46% of people in Serbia, would get vaccinated if it was recommended by a professional.

    This panel discussion will be centred around public distrust and potential strategies for informing the public about public health topics. Furthermore, in order to additionally inform the public, this panel will include experts who will explain the specifics of each approved COVID-19 vaccine. How the EU is helping Serbia in achieving this endeavour will also be discussed.
