The CVD's most recent bi-annual Vaccinology course (PREV 627)  began in February 2021. 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 is a unique opportunity to acquire up-to-date knowledge in the field of vaccinology. A certificate of training is provided to those who attend regularly.
