The immunisation programme in the UK is constantly evolving to best protect the public by controlling vaccine preventable diseases. Health professionals must keep up to date with these changes. 

This course will provide an annual update in principles and practice of influenza vaccination. It will discuss current policy and how this is reflected in a Primary Care environment and provide participants with an understanding of the current Flu Vaccines – 2018/19.*

By the end of the session, participants will have:

*all participants will receive a certificate of attendance. 

Registered nurses, GPs and midwives attending will be eligible to administer the Flu vaccine once they have read, understood and signed the Flu PGD in their work place.

Health Care Assistants/’Phlebotomists’ may attend but we must reiterate they are not legally eligible to use PGDs. If they are being asked to administer vaccines they are doing so under the instructions of their GP's, using a prescription or a Patient Specific Direction (PSD), and they also need to be mentored before being deemed competent to give an injection/immunisation.  This should be done in their work place. 

The RCN supports the role of the HCSW in administering influenza, pneumococcal and shingles vaccinations to adults providing they are appropriately trained and have the support of a registered health care professional and their employer.
