Thanks to the British Society for Immunology, the Irish Society for Immunology brings you evidence-based, curated and reliable information on COVID-19 vaccines and how they protect us from infection. 

The British Society for Immunology created a free, easy to read guide on vaccinations for COVID-19 for a public audience. This guide explains how vaccines work and answers your common questions as well as providing up-to-date information on the current approved COVID-19 vaccinations in the UK, Ireland and the many other countries around the world. 

In addition to the COVID-19 guide, please see below for further information provided by ISI to better understand how vaccines work and the benefits that they provide to individuals and societies. 

We invite you to explore these resources and share them with family and friends.
