During the meeting of the Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety (ENVI) in the EP in Brussels, MEPs call for measures to address vaccine “hesitancy” in the EU, where growing numbers of people are choosing to delay or refuse vaccines. Recent data from EU member states show a significant drop in the use of vaccines. The results are: 55 in favour, 1 against and 3 abstentions.
