Everything you need to know about vaccinations

As the debate over whether to vaccinate rages globally and the space between those for and against expands, it is vital that provision is made for parents, health providers and members of the public looking for guidance and clarity. 

The Global Vaccination Summit brings experts on the subject to the public via a free online event to answer the burning questions about vaccinations right now.

Expert speakers are asked questions curated from the public and health professionals around the world in a series of interviews presented online, completely free of charge to attend. The public requires a sober, honest space where people come together to learn about the risks and benefits of vaccination without fear of being ostracised or distracted from the facts at hand.  

We all want to improve global health for our loved ones and for ourselves both in the present and the future. Polarisation of the two sides of the vaccination debate prevents authentic dialogue and creates confusion and anxiety for the public. The Vaccination Summit aims to restore calm back into this debate, with the ultimate goal of protecting and promoting the long term health and wellbeing of society.
12+ interviews with the global vaccination experts, sharing with you the latest on vaccinations to help health professionals, parents and concerned citizens make better decisions about vaccinations.
Attend online, and see the interviews in the comfort of your home.  All you need to do is enter your email for the free tickets and we will email you the access details.
“The World Health Organisation has identified vaccine hesitancy as a major threat to global health, it’s essential we act now to depolarise the opposing groups, to connect people with an honest, transparent and factual conversation. It is through understanding each other’s point of view that we can find common ground.”
