The CVD's most recent bi-annual Vaccinology course (PREV 627)  began in January 2019. The course consisted of a series of lectures on a variety of vaccinology topics including:

Special lectures addressed highly debated issues of current interest such as vaccine safety, public perception of vaccines, and emerging infectious diseases (e.g., Ebola and Zika). Lectures were presented by experts in the field recruited from industry, academia, and government.

This  course was a unique opportunity to acquire up-to-date knowledge in the field of vaccinology. A certificate of training will be provided to those who attend regularly.
