Vaccines Today is an online platform for discussing vaccines and vaccination launched in March 2011. The portal is sponsored by Vaccines Europe, a trade association of vaccine manufacturers. It strives to provide an interactive forum for debate as well as serving as a source of reliable information.

Content is created independently by a journalist and editor, with an Editorial Board providing quality assurance and accuracy. The Editorial Board includes independent doctors, a patient representative and nominees from Vaccines Europe member companies.

Features include regularly updated news content; information on vaccine-preventable diseases; '20 Facts’ about vaccination; and a ‘Your Stories’ section for articles by parents, doctors and vaccine advocates. The Website is complemented by Twitter, Facebook and YouTube channels.
