Hosted by the Royal Netherlands Academy of Arts and Sciences (KNAW)

Vaccination has long been considered one of the greatest advances in medicine, since it was shown to be the major way to combat communicable diseases in humans and animals. In recent years vaccination has become a matter of controversy in which doctors, scientists and vaccine producers are under attack by ill-informed sceptics. This conference, which follows the recent EASAC/FEAM Commentary on Vaccination in Europe, will identify the scientific issues relevant to future vaccine development and vaccine policy.
