We are pleased to announce that we are developing the 14th Vaccine Congress into a FREE online event, enabling us to provide wider access to the research development on Covid-19 during this time of crisis. The congress will take place online from 28-29 September 2020 and will be available afterwards on demand.

The focus will be on combatting the threat of Covid-19, with leading experts in vaccinology sharing their knowledge on the current developments and challenges we face.

The Congress is organized by Vaccine, the premier journal for those interested in vaccine science and will be chaired by Gregory A. Poland, Editor in Chief, Vaccine and Mayo Clinic, USA.
