Vaccine and Immunization Training
Vaccines are one of the most effective life-saving inventions of all time. Vaccines have saved roughly 37 million lives between 2000 and 2019 and are projected to save 69 million deaths by 2030. This makes vaccines one of the top public health interventions in history. These statistics are even more impressive because much of the benefit has been in children under the age of five. An understanding of vaccine administration best practices and the contraindications and inclusion or exclusion criteria of vaccines for patients are essential to the safe and effective administration of vaccines.
Identify vaccine administration clinical activities and immunization resources for current vaccines.
Describe administration routes and sites for routinely recommended vaccines.
Identify strategies and best practices to prevent vaccine administration errors.
