British Society for Immunology

The British Society for Immunology represents scientists and doctors who study the immune system. A key part of our work is to spark interest in and strengthen understanding of immunology. We aim to ensure that the public benefits from the successes of immunology by communicating with and inspiring a wide range of audiences.

Celebrate Vaccines is the latest campaign from the British Society for Immunology to champion the importance of vaccines and vaccine research in advancing global health. There are resources suitable for all ages on our Celebrate Vaccines website.

Featured resources that you can get involved with include:

  • Hands-on activities and games for all ages to try at home. Fun ways to explore how vaccines train the immune system to protect us from disease.
  • A collection of scientific drawings of viruses and bacteria for colouring. Suitable for everyone to get creative while learning.
  • Animated videos about how vaccines work, how new vaccines are made and the positive impact of vaccines around the world. Watch and find out the power of vaccines.
  • A photo gallery showing what a day in the life of a vaccine researcher looks like. Discover what researchers get up to through images and stories.
  • Educational materials, including interactive activities, for ages 7 to 14. Find ideas and resources for teaching vaccine immunology at home.
  • Our guide to childhood vaccinations provides reliable, evidence-based information, answers to common questions and uncovers the truths behind vaccine myths. Parents can feel confident in making informed decisions about their child’s health.

You can also explore our artistic resource about the immunology of coronavirus; Colour In Coronavirus is a collection of illustrations for all ages to learn about the virus. Add colour to make the virus striking so it will be spotted by the immune system.
