TREC New to Immunisations Course

Download or Print Course Brochure

This study day has been developed in response to requests from health care professionals who are new to immunisations and  require general immunisation training.

The course is designed for health professionals who are new to immunisations and prior to commencing administration of vaccines, should undertake foundation training. The focus of teaching will be UK vaccines for adults. Whilst the UK national immunisation schedule will be touched upon, this course is not suitable for those that are looking for a course covering immunisations within the childhood programme.     The course will take place over a day and a half and will provide structured teaching sessions, discussion, and the opportunity to share ideas and experiences with other practitioners.  There will also be practical sessions on vaccine administration and CPR.  On day 2 the course will finish at 1230.

The content is based on training requirements as recommended within the National Minimum Standards for Immunisation Training Guidance. We will concentrate the information on UK adult vaccines e.g. Hep B, Flu, Varicella, Tetanus etc so anticipate that it will be of relevance to occupational health staff or any other health care professionals providing immunisation and vaccine advice to adults.  Please note that travel risk assessment is not covered on this course.  This is covered on our Travel Health Course.
