Team Vaccines

The COVID-19 pandemic has shown that when we work together, we can achieve more than we ever thought possible. But there is more to be done.

Who are #TeamVaccines

We are the people who make vaccines. We work across the research-based biopharmaceutical industry, in all sorts of roles — from research and development, to manufacturing, to government affairs. We’re on #TeamVaccines because we believe vaccines can help make a better life possible for everyone.

This doesn’t just apply to the COVID-19 vaccines – vaccines can protect against all kinds of diseases, for people of all ages and at all stages of life. If you share our belief in the value of vaccines, we invite you to join us. Together we can give vaccines the greatest chance to make an even greater impact on our health, our communities, and our world.
