We are honoured to welcome Professor Sir Andrew Pollard to the Not Mini Adults Podcast this week. Sir Andrew is Professor of Paediatric Infection and Immunity at the University of Oxford, Director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, Fellow of St Cross College and Honorary Consultant Paediatrician at the Oxford Children’s Hospital, Oxford, UK.
Andrew trained in Paediatrics at Birmingham Children’s Hospital, specialising in Paediatric Infectious Diseases at St Mary’s Hospital, London, UK and at British Columbia Children’s Hospital, Vancouver, Canada.
He chairs the UK Department of Health’s Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation and the European Medicines Agency scientific advisory group on vaccines, he is also a member of World Health Organisation’s SAGE.
Andrew was knighted in 2021 by Her Majesty the Queen for services to public health, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic. Sir Andrew played a crucial role in the development of the Oxford coronavirus vaccine and led the global clinical trials that started in the spring of 2020.
There is one word to describe our conversation with Sir Andrew and that is 'IMPACT'. This was truly an inspiring conversation and we of course discuss Andrew’s work in developing a COVID-19 vaccination, but just as importantly his work in helping to develop vaccines for children all over the world.
