    It is possible to have a career in Immunology without experiments on 
live animals. Biochemical immunology, ie focussing at the molecular level,
and some areas of immunogenetics involve many experiments that do not
require experiments on animals. However it seems unlikely that you will be
able to avoid others in your field/institute or even lab doing experiments
on animals. Don't be discouraged.
    It is possible that your work will require samples from humans or other
animals but using this material is different to doing experiments on live
Good luck
