The Vaccine Knowledge App is based on the information on this website and contains ‘bite-sized’ sections on every aspect of vaccines and infectious diseases in the UK. It provides clear, relevant and unbiased information in a user-friendly format which can be accessed ‘on the go’. You can also access all our short films, and there is a personalised section where you can enter your child’s date of birth to find out which vaccines they are due. To our knowledge, this is the only app of its type so far developed for a UK audience.

What is the Vaccine Knowledge Project?
Decisions about vaccination can be a source of anxiety. People wanting to find out about immunisation are faced by a huge amount of information, including an ever-growing amount online, but it can be difficult to assess the authority of this, or what it means for you. This project aims to make independent and authoritative scientific information available to all. It gives everyone, from teenagers to parents, access to the expertise and knowledge of Oxford Vaccine Group researchers. The pages are designed with a non-specialist audience in mind, the aim being not to simplify but to clarify complex information. The site is updated regularly to reflect the latest developments, and all medical content is reviewed by Professor Andrew Pollard. Oxford Vaccine Group is a research group in the Department of Paediatrics at the University of Oxford.
