An overview over vaccination programmes against pandemic influenza (A(H1N1)pdm09) during the 2009/2010 pandemic. This was part of the VENICE-2 project collecting data on immunization programmes in EU countries on behalf of the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC). Our overview indicated simililarities of priority groups for vaccination and large differences in vaccine uptake, which probably reflects how effective were different governments in communicating with their societies.
