The research is devoted to the corpus analysis of the semantic prosody of collocations with VACCINATION in the broadsheet The Guardian. The corpora have been processed with the help of Sketch Engine and the collocations with VACCINATION have been analysed. The study mostly concentrates on the modifiers with VACCINATION as subject and object as most representative in media texts. The dictionary definition of VACCINATION interprets it as a word with neutral semantic prosody. The discourse analysis of the data obtained proves that collocations containing this collocate have mostly neutral or positive semantic colouring. The second phase of the research was a free associative experiment using the method of individual questioning of 355 testees aged from 16 to 22 years. The associative experiment enabled to single out words associated with HEALTH among technology, philology and medical students. We could observe a significant difference in the amount of the reaction VACCINATION in the group of medical students as they know the scientific approach and importance of vaccinations today, because they can prevent serious illness, medical expenses and disease outbreaks in the community.
