English term or phrase: vaccinologist
Context: The advent of the vaccine against HPV brings together two major health communities who have not usually worked together in the past, namely cancerologists and ***vaccinologists.***

This is taken from an interview regarding the introduction of HPV vaccines in developing countries. The interviewee is a non-native speaker (I assume). I've changed "cancerologist" to "oncologist" but can only think of "immunologist" as a replacement for "vaccinologist" as the latter term doesn't appear in either Webster's or the OED. Any other ideas?

Thanks in advance.

Andy.
