Child Immunisation - Level 3 - Online CPD Accredited Training Course for Healthcare & Social Care Professionals

Childhood immunisation is a highly successful public health intervention that protects individuals across their life course. In addition, child immunisations help to save thousands of lives across the world every year. To ensure ongoing public confidence in vaccines and high vaccine uptake, it is vital that all those who advise on and/or administer immunisations are confident, knowledgeable and up to date. This e-learning course was designed in line with the recommendations made in the Public Health England (PHE) National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training.

Our online child immunisation course comprehensively covers the core areas of immunisation with which healthcare practitioners must be familiar with to deliver immunisations safely and effectively. Healthcare practitioners must also be able to answer commonly asked questions confidently and accurately. This module covers the UK current immunisation schedule for children, including recent changes, special considerations, and contraindications to immunisations and what to do about them.
