World Immunisation Week 2020

This week (24 - 30 April 2020) marks World Immunisation Week.

We're very excited to continue our Celebrate Vaccines campaign to champion the critical role of vaccination and vaccine research in advancing global health.

Vaccination is an important success story for immunology and vaccine research remains a central part of public health initiatives globally.

With over 4,200 members around the globe, the BSI represents the voice of researchers who work on vaccines as well as the wider immunology community. In this capacity, we have joined forces with several partners to carry out vaccine advocacy in the run-up to the next GAVI Replenishment Conference. We have called this initiative 'Celebrate Vaccines' to highlight the amazing contribution of vaccines in saving lives and supporting global health.

Take a look around the Celebrate Vaccine website to find out more about the project.

For World Immunisation Week, we have pooled a range of activities and resources related to immunisation and will be posting on social media throughout the week. 

We hope you will join us online with the #CelebrateVaccines hashtag for a week of vaccine advocacy, education and celebration!


Take part in the #CelebrateVaccines movement with our fun and educational activities!


We have developed a selection of public engagement resources about the immunology of vaccines for you to download and share.

Social media channels
