End of Course Summary

Thank you for joining us throughout the course.

We hope that you have a better understanding of the role of vaccines not only in preventing infectious disease but also in preventing antimicrobial resistance. The benefit of vaccination is not restricted to children, people of all age groups can benefit.

For vaccines to be effective they have to be used. We have discussed the challenges of ensuring that vaccines are available around the world. Many of these challenges are yet to be met. The field of vaccinology is one that is rapidly evolving and continues to be one of the most successful public health interventions.

We hope you can take on board what has been discussed and promote the use of vaccines in your setting to further reduce the impact of infectious diseases and antimicrobial resistance.

Please let us know what your main takeaway message is from the course and if you will be doing anything differently in your setting in the comments section below.
