The centre advises the Dutch Government on Immunology and Vaccinology and carries out research to generate knowledge and data on the immune response to infectious diseases and to vaccinations offered in the framework of the government’s infectious disease control programme.

This covers not only the current immunisation programmes, such as the National Immunisation Programme, but also emerging infectious diseases and vaccinations to be offered in the future.
