Mission statement

Vaccines Today is an online platform for discussing vaccines and vaccination. The target audience is the general public and others in Europe with an interest in immunisation.

Vaccines continue to make headlines in Europe around the world and are of great interest to citizens and health professionals alike. The platform strives to provide an interactive forum for informed debate on issues around vaccination, as well as to serve as a source of reliable information, bringing the community of stakeholders together to share their views.

To facilitate an informed discussion that takes all views on vaccination into account, the content of Vaccines Today is produced through interviews with experts from academia, patient groups, and industry experts, along with reports based on scientific literature and conferences.

The information provided on Vaccines Today is designed to support, not to replace, the relationship that exists between a patient/site visitor and his/her physician.

Vaccines Today is sponsored by Vaccines Europe, a specialised group of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associations (“EFPIA”) which consists of the following companies:
