It is with great excitement that we can announce this year’s Clinical Vaccine Network Conference will be held in person at the Royal College of Physicians, London.
Hosted on the 30th June, this event will cover a wide spectrum of issues in vaccine development, presentations on the latest research, and the future of vaccines.
Whilst this conference will be made available to join virtually we thoroughly recommend attending in person to not miss out on this excellent networking opportunity. There will be an array of UK healthcare professionals, and other relevant decision makers who have a specific interest in vaccine intervention in the patient pathway.
Please share the flyer for the event available here with your colleagues.
If you have any queries, or would like to enquire about sponsorship of this event, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org.
