2nd European Society of Clinical Microbiology and Infectious Diseases Conference on Impact of Vaccines in Public Health

As part of its multifaceted approach to infections, ESCMID strives to promote vaccination and worries that the current lack of correct information among both lay public and healthcare providers might seriously undermine the efficacy of current and future vaccine campaigns. This conference will bring together world-leading experts to debate the many-sided correlations between vaccines, medicine and society at the dawn of the third millennium.
