Flu Vaccination Training
Flu vaccination services have been widely commissioned from community pharmacies over the last few years. NHS England has determined that pharmacists providing the Flu Vaccination Service need to attend face-to-face training for both injection technique and basic life support training every two years. Pharmacists who will provide the Flu Vaccination Service must therefore complete practical training in vaccination that meets the requirements relevant to the role. This training workshop will provide you with the skills and training required to deliver this service.
