COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna e-learning now available

Alex Drinkall, 8 April 2021

Health Education England elearning for healthcare has worked in partnership with Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement to develop the COVID-19 Vaccination elearning programme.  The elearning programme is designed to provide the health and care workforce involved in the national COVID-19 vaccination programme with the knowledge they need to confidently promote high uptake of the vaccine and deliver the vaccine programme effectively.

The COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna is now available. Currently the national vaccination programme is only deploying this this vaccine to a limited group of vaccination centres. Staff who are rostered to work at these sites are asked to complete the core knowledge session as this is designed to provide essential knowledge about COVID-19 and the key principles of immunisation needed to deliver the vaccine.  Learners should then complete the vaccine-specific elearning session and assessment in advance. Staff working in PCN sites and Hospital Hub settings are not required to complete the training at this time but may want to access it at a future date. In addition, further information about the vaccine characteristics can be viewed via Chapter14a in the Green Book and the Summary of Product Characteristics for COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna (SmPC).

The vaccination elearning programme also consists of the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 Pfizer-BioNTech session, the COVID-19 Vaccine AstraZeneca session and accompanying assessment sessions for each.

The elearning sessions describe the national COVID-19 vaccination programme for England. Most of the information in the sessions will be relevant for those involved in the programme throughout the UK and Crown Dependencies. However, those undertaking the programme in Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales and the Crown Dependencies should be aware that some details as to how the programme will be delivered may be different. Vaccinators should therefore ensure that they refer to any country-specific information available, so they are familiar with the details of the programme for the country they are practising in.

This elearning programme provides theoretical training.  Practical training in vaccine administration, and assessment and sign-off competency is also required before administering the COVID-19 vaccine.
