Vaccinator Training Course - What Does It Cover?

Vaccinator training course knowledge is absolutely invaluable to all healthcare professionals (particularly nurses), clinicians and pharmacists who are performing regular vaccinations. While such courses cover a lot of ground when it comes to imparting knowledge, it is achievable in a short space of time.

Of course, how well this knowledge is retained is very much dependent on the quality of vaccination training that is received. There are a number of different subjects that are covered when it comes to immunisation and vaccination administration. This includes learning the basics about the different diseases that can be prevented by vaccination, a basic overview of how vaccines interact with the immune system and national policy in relation to vaccination procedures. There has to be, of course, an understanding of the different vaccines, what they are composed of, how vaccines need to be stored and handled, and how to properly administer a vaccine. Practical issues such as communication with patients and documentation are covered too. Then there are the theoretical and legal aspects, covering contemporary controversies relating to immunisation, the legal issues surrounding vaccination and strategies regarding the improvement of immunisation rates. Finally, learners will work out how to identify adverse effects potentially caused by a vaccination, such as anaphylaxis. It is also highly recommended that medical training in vaccinations is accompanied by courses in basic life support and anaphylactic shock. This covers what you are likely to find when training in vaccination and immunisation.
