Vaccination training requirements

Clinical Update Icon

Over the next few weeks and subsequent months, EEAST along with all other NHS Trusts, CCGs and PCNs will be expanding the vaccination program with a view to working along the priority list to get as many vaccinated as possible.

We as a Trust will be seeking to get all our staff vaccinated through one of two routes; via the acute Trusts, CCGs and PCNs; and our own internal vaccination program.

There will be a call for vaccinators both to assist internally and further down the line, assist at external partner sites subject to agreement for release.

Either way, if you would be interested in vaccinating staff for the Trust or as part of the National program, you will need to have completed the immuniser training and then the subsequent vaccinator core knowledge training and then the vaccine specific training. The links for all of these are below:

Please access this training through e-LH - e-LfH Hub

Standard Immuniser training for anyone who hasn’t been a vaccinator in the last 12 months:

Covid specific training for ALL vaccinators; Core Knowledge for Covid Vaccinators

Astra Zenica specific training for ALL vaccinators; COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca

If you would be interested in being part of the vaccinator team, please discuss with your local covid and lateral flow leads, complete these and retain your completion certificates as they will be needed for evidence to be part of the vaccinator clinics. This will be the case for all staff in the vaccination pods if you will be drawing up the medicine, undertaking the clinical assessments or undertaking the injections. 

If you have any questions, please get in touch via covid.booking@eastamb.nhs.uk

Thanks very much
