Global vaccinology training e-portal

Welcome to  website of the global collaboration on vaccinology training.
This site is mostly aimed at providing a listing of existing vaccinology training courses, of varying durations and training modalities (in-person, online, blended), and an easy search process for interested parties looking for a vaccinology course and identifying alternative courses. This website also allows sharing information between vaccinology training courses.

    The creation of such a web platform for information on available vaccinology training was proposed and strongly supported by the participants of a workshop held on 7–8 November 2018 at the initiative of the Advanced Vaccinology Course (ADVAC). This workshop was attended by the leaders of 26 advanced vaccinology courses who met to carry out an extensive review of the existing courses worldwide, in order to identify education gaps and future needs as well as discuss potential collaboration (Duclos P, et al. Global vaccinology training: Report from an ADVAC workshop. Vaccine. 2019; Volume 37, Issue 22, Pages 2871-2881).

    The information provided on each course at the respective links is the sole responsibility of the persons in charge of their respective websites/courses. Guidance is available on minimum elements of information to be provided on the vaccinology courses websites.

    The listing of a vaccinology course on this page does not mean an endorsement of its content or any certification of the quality of the teaching approach. All training courses listed on this website have obtained formal endorsement/accreditation from either a tertiary training institution and/ or a training accreditation institution (e.g. Continued medical education).

    All courses listed, while varying in nature and prerequisites, tend to be advanced courses covering multiple aspects of vaccinology, if not alluding to all aspects.

    More courses may be available such as national courses targeting health workers or courses of a more focused nature such as courses on vaccine safety. 

    We suggest that you may also contact your National Immunization Programme and/or browse the WHO website at for finding information on such courses.
