In one of the events, there had been Immunology walks, WDI caps, notebooks and pens . In several events , students took oath to promote awareness of Immunology  and Immunology Research  en mass. Resolutions were taken to celebrate the day each year, hold CMEs and Hand on workshops, organize Immunology art competitions   and exhibitions by school students and ensure media coverage of the WDI , as much as feasible.  For some competitive events , students were given prizes . All the participants were given certificates. Celebration of the day had been a grand success. In total about 4000-5000 participated in WDI celebration promoted by IIS.Young researchers were told to work to reduce the cost of immunotherapy especially the ART immunotherapeutics for cancer so that the cost is affordable to common mass.
