Immunology and Vaccination

Immunology and Vaccination

These workshops have been developed for anyone who will be delivering immunisations in any setting. This is a blended approach of both e learning and a face to face taught course. Those practitioners new to immunisation are required to receive comprehensive foundation immunisation training and therefore should attend the full taught day. There is also a requirement that these practitioners complete some elements of the elearning modules prior to attending the full day taught session.

These training sessions have been developed around the Public Health England (2018) Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training.
