Sophia Wilkinson

Vaccine Knowledge and Public Engagement Manager

My role has responsibility for engaging different communities and publics around the work of the Oxford Vaccine Group. We do this through taking part in events, social media, creating different communication content and through our Vaccine Knowledge website. This long-running platform is a source of accurate, reliable information about all aspects of vaccines. I am also responsible for OVG's public engagement and communication strategy.  Finally, we carry out research to inform and evaluate our interventions, to contribute to the evidence base around vaccines and society.

Before OVG, I was the Senior Public and Patient Engagement and Involvement officer at Oxford Population Health. Previous roles include working on large-scale health communication projects with the BBC's international charity in Africa and Asia. I started my career as a radio producer and journalist.
