About the Immunisation on Neonatal Units programme

This e-learning session has been developed by the Thames Valley & Wessex Neonatal Operational Delivery Network in partnership with Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare (HEE e-LfH). The session aims to support newly qualified/novice nurses, neonatal nurses, and other members of multi-professional teams to achieve knowledge and competence in the administration and management of neonatal immunisations, including vaccination for Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV). The e-learning session will be used as part of a blended learning approach as an adjunct to face-to-face teaching sessions, simulation and scenarios to facilitate reflection and real time feedback.

This session will discuss and review the issues surrounding vaccination of pre-term infants while resident on a neonatal unit. It will discuss issues around who can give consent while the baby is still resident on a neonatal unit, why it is important to administer routine immunisations at the appropriate time and within the schedule and when a delay in vaccination timing may be appropriate.
