Flu Immunisation e-learning programme updated for the new season

Alex Drinkall, 17 August 2020

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked with Public Health England (PHE) to update the Flu Immunisation elearning programme to ensure it is up to date for the 2020/21 flu season.

With the ongoing global COVID-19 pandemic, it is more important than ever that this year’s annual flu vaccination programme is safely and effectively delivered to as many of those eligible as possible to protect those at risk. It is therefore crucial that those giving flu vaccines are confident, competent and have up to date knowledge about the vaccine(s) they are giving. The Flu Immunisation elearning resource is designed to provide all healthcare practitioners involved in delivering the national flu immunisation programme with the knowledge they need to confidently promote high uptake of flu vaccination and administer the flu vaccines to those who need them.

The elearning course consists of three knowledge sessions and three assessment sessions. All those undertaking this elearning should complete the Core Knowledge session and accompanying assessment as this is designed to provide essential knowledge about what flu is and the rationale for, and design of, the annual flu programme. Depending on which session(s) is relevant to your role, you should then complete one or both subsequent knowledge and assessment sessions which provide more detailed information about the live and inactivated flu vaccines.
The Flu Immunisation programme is available to access on the elfh Hub, ESR and via AICC links.
