Day of Immunology Flash Mob




On the 24th and 27th April 2018, Melbourne was taken over by a plague of immunology enthusiasts… this is their happy story.

This is a chronical all about how,
a squad of scientists turned Melbourne upside down!

One fine day with a step and a clap,
a pod of purple dancers began to click and tap!

Dr Catherine Osborne counted them in,
and crowds of Melburnians stared on with big grins!

Shoppers and city slickers watched with wonder,
as synchronised scientists tried to dance without blunder!

A happy beat filled the air,
from Bourke Street Mall to Federation Square!

Catherine called the chorey ... High! Low! and Rainbow!
In a flash it was all over, the end of the show!

The hive of entertainers buzzed here and bounced there,
spreading the good word of vaccine science to whom had a care!

At the booked-out vax café with coffee in hand,
Jill Hennessey thought the flash mob performances were grand!

Thank you to all who shared the good vibe,
from all of us here at the JLR tribe.


More of the DoI Flash Mob Below

We are organizing a Flash Mob to promote the International Day of Immunology! 

Here’s how to join the coolest, hippest event in the DoI program

Flash mobs will take place on April 24th and April 27th in Melbourne. We are looking for enthusiastic flash mob participants to be a part of this unique experience in the name of science! Flash mobbers will need to be available for a few dance rehearsals (Even if you have no dance experience, our choreographers will have you busting moves down Bourke St in no time!).

Plus you'll get your very own Day of Immunology T-shirt and bragging rights once the videos go viral - of course!

You can be a part of the Flash Mob SIGN UP
