New: Would you like to be part of a Public and Patient Involvement group at Oxford Vaccine Group?
We are aiming to recruit a small group of members of the public with an interest in vaccination research to meet around three times a year. The group will potentially have an important impact on the way we run our clinical trials into new vaccines. Find out more.
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 new project, funded by the NIHR Oxford Biomedical Research Centre and the Oxford Martin School, 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.
