BSI guide to vaccinations for COVID-19

The British Society for Immunology is proud to publish a new vaccination guide on COVID-19 vaccines for the public. This resource explains how vaccines work and answers common questions and concerns and provides up-to-date information on the current approved COVID-19 vaccinations in the UK.

We know that the public may have specific questions regarding COVID-19 vaccines and that’s why we have created a free, easy to read guide on vaccinations for COVID-19 suitable for a public audience.

We'd like to encourage our members and the immunology community to download and share this guide.
