New Roles in Primary Care National Toolkit - HEE

Immunisation training standards for healthcare practitioners and the importance of training for Covid-19 vaccinators
With an approved vaccine against coronavirus (COVID-19) becoming available shortly and a considerable number of people requiring vaccination as rapidly as possible, a substantial workforce who can be mobilised quickly to give the vaccine safely is needed. It may therefore be necessary to rapidly train people who have not vaccinated for some time or who have not previously given a vaccine in order to maximise vaccine uptake in a short time period, it is important that all practitioners involved in immunisation have a high level of knowledge and are confident in immunisation policy and procedures. We have tried to set out the recommendations and relevant documents for training a workforce who are knowledgeable and able to confidently, competently and safely deliver the COVID-19 vaccine programme at pace.
It is of vital importance that the COVID-19 vaccinator workforce receives comprehensive training and competency assessment in order that those who receive this vaccine are protected and public confidence in the vaccine is established and maintained.
The Public Health England Recommended Immunisation training requirements by workforce group for the Covid-19 vaccine you can find HERE. This COVID-19 vaccinator training guidance has been written to meet a very specific need in an emergency pandemic situation. The intention is to maximise delivery whilst ensuring that a COVID-19 vaccine is given safely and effectively.
Training:- vaccinators should have attended the appropriate Foundation Immunisation Course prior to administrating vaccines and been assessed as competent.
The aim of the national standards is to describe the training that should be given to all practitioners engaging in any aspect of immunisation so that they are able to confidently, competently and effectively promote and administer vaccinations.
Updates:- COVID-19 e-learning programme Immunisation can be accessed at: https://www.e-lfh.org.uk/programmes/immunisation/-
The training includes vaccine storage, administration and legal aspects sessions.
National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for immunisation Training for Registered Healthcare Practitioners you can find HERE.
Please ensure all vaccinators are up to date with Basic Life Support (BLS) and anaphylaxis training. All non-registered vaccinators need to have completed the Care Certificate as this is a patient facing role and ensure PSDs are in place. I will circulate the Covid-19 PGD as soon as it is available.
In order to ensure the ongoing delivery of a high quality, safe and effective immunisation programme that achieves high uptake, it is important that all practitioners involved in immunisation have a high level of knowledge and are confident in immunisation policy and procedures.
