Oxford Vaccine Group has over 25 years' experience in vaccine research from preclinical development to policy influencing trials. The Vaccine Knowledge Project was developed to raise public awareness of the importance of vaccination and the website is used by the public and health professionals, with over 2 million page views in 2020.
