  • Post-vaccination observation, advice and safety; skills and knowledge to carry out post-vaccination observation duties under supervision


After completing the theory lesson there is a brief feedback form to fill in. We'd really appreciate it if you could do this in to help us improve the course for others.

The Workbook

A work book can be downloaded from within the 'Course Structure' section of the Theory lesson. This workbook gives you more information on the vaccination process, cold chain and post vaccination observation role. There are sections for you to complete to demonstrate your knowledge. These can be worked through and filled in whilst at the work site.
If you are going to be supporting cold chain processes onsite, you MUST complete the Cold Chain Management section in the Workbook and get the Cold chain competencies section signed off by the Cold Chain lead.

Completing the lessons

The Theory and Feedback lessons have a final slide asking you to click a button to confirm you have finished. Please click the button and then click the green 'finish' button below that confirms you have completed these lessons.
When you have done that, you will see each lesson has a green score of 100. Your certificate will then be available for you to download as a pdf.
Your employer will want a copy of the certificate to prove you completed the course and may need you to complete the workbook.
