The Vaccine Taskforce
Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy
The Vaccine Taskforce (VTF) collaborated with the Department of Health and Social Care and the National Institute for Health Research to commission the National Immunisation Schedule Evaluation Consortium (NISEC) to design trials on mixed vaccine schedules and boosters. These trials supplemented developer data, focussing on the benefits of different vaccine combinations and boosters. The results have informed decisions on vaccine rollout globally, including the recent Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation advice on the UK booster campaign. These studies continue to inform policy as further data is generated.
