Today (2 June 2021) the UK is hosting the world’s first Global Vaccine Confidence Summit. Bringing together public and private sector experts from around the world, the summit aims to drive forward collective action to build global vaccine confidence and increase vaccine uptake in the fight against COVID-19.
The British Society for Immunology continues to champion the role of vaccination in advancing global health. We are calling on the UK Government to make improving vaccine confidence a specific legacy project of the 2021 G7 conference.
The pandemic has shone the spotlight on vaccine confidence like never before. It is only through high levels of trust in vaccination that communities around the globe will be protected from SARS-CoV-2 and its emerging variants, in addition to consigning many other preventable diseases to the past. Now is the opportunity to support confidence in life-saving COVID-19 vaccines and use this momentum to advance global health and enable our societies to thrive.
Join us in amplifying this important message by tweeting your support for the summit and for our call to action to make building global vaccine confidence a priority for the future.
