The British Immunological Society launches the “Celebrate Vaccines” campaign on March 26

March 25, 2020

The British Society for Immunology is launching a campaign to celebrate the amazing role of vaccines in global health on March 26, 2020.

Why is this important?

Vaccines transform society and save lives. Our goal is to strengthen the public’s understanding of vaccines in a positive way and to empower people to make informed decisions about vaccination.

What do you need to do?

On Thursday 26th March we want you to:

Why now?
Celebrate Vaccines was conceived as part of a wider advocacy push in the run-up to the GAVI Replenishment Conference 2020, long before the emergence of the new COVID-19. However, as the world races to develop a vaccine for this new infectious disease, the critical role of vaccination for protecting global health and maintaining our way of life comes into sharper focus.

GAVI, the Vaccine Alliance work to protect vulnerable children from other preventable diseases through their immunisation programmes. Their next strategic cycle aims to raise $7.4 billion to immunise 300 million children around the world – an impressive and important goal. By Celebrating Vaccines we hope to contribute to this incredible mission by engaging the public and informing the narrative about why vaccines are important. We invite you to celebrate the power of vaccines with us!

Visit the Celebrate Vaccines website to learn more about the project and to check out the social media toolkit. You will also find our free, public engagement vaccine kit for families and school children available to download.
