The public are welcome to attend this cafe-style event between 11am-2pm where Adelaide researchers will present 20 minute discussions about their latest findings on immunology.

The program is as follows:

11.00am: Dr Mohammed Alsharifi (University of Adelaide) - development of new influenza vaccines

12.00pm: Professor John Hayball(UniSA) - new experimental vaccines

1.00pm: Dr Lisa Ebert(UniSA) - recent developments in cancer immunotherapies

Being the school holidays, the Vaccination Cafe is family friendly, with a Kids Corner offering iPads with immunology themed games and an immunology themed coloring-in competition for kids.

Annual trivalent influenza vaccines will be available for administration by nurses at a discounted cost of $10. At the time of writing, there were still a limited number of vaccination appointments available in the afternoon, with the last available appointment at 1.55pm.

Your Comment
A 'Vaccination Cafe' seems a bizarre combination of activities, but I guess if you need a flu shot you might as well learn about where future developments of vaccination are headed, and have a cuppa at the same time!
