Immunisation programmes are one of our most successful public health measures. Ensuring public and professional confidence is critical to the success of these programmes. As the incidence of infectious diseases declines, it is important that professionals are able to explain why vaccinations are still needed.
In a climate where vaccine controversies are frequent and public confidence in vaccines may waver, immunisers need to be confident, knowledgeable and up to date.
This training programme addresses the key areas that need to be covered and are outlined in the Health Protection Agency’s document on National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training.
The training will be delivered using PowerPoint, Video, Group discussion/quiz.
This course is NOT suitable for HCAs. The introductory HCA course is Injection Technique & Immunisation Training.
