World Immunization Week 2022 - 24 to 30 April

VALIDATE is joining organisations from around the world to mark World Immunization Week. During this week the WHO and partners aims to highlight the collective action needed and to promote the use of vaccines to protect people of all ages against disease.

We will be tweeting throughout the week and we encourage VALIDATE members to take part on their own social media using the #WorldImmunizationweek and #longlifeforall. You can find resources on the WHO Campaign page.



You can find a list of all relevant external funding we've spotted for our members on our external funding page.​​​​ ​​

Check out our Publications Page for members' publications and email VALIDATE@ndm.ox.ac.uk if you have a paper you would like us to include.

Highlights on Twitter this week:

The Working Group on New TB Vaccines shared their monthly list of articles on TB vaccines, PLOS Medicines launched a call for papers on Bacterial Antimicrobial Resistance: Surveillance and Prevention, and Madhu Paui shared an article on the prospects of an mRNA vaccine for TB. US head of NIAID Anthony Fauci called for more resources to TB vaccine development, Knowledge Stall discussed a new TB model and how it can help vaccine development and we shared an article from Eastmojo asking “Can we improve on a once-in-a-century TB vaccine?”. For #WorldImmunizationWeek we shared a number of our videos including “A Vaccine for Leprosy?”, BCG Then and Now, and BCG100 for Schools.
