This micro skills course from NHS Health Education England provides specific information about the COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 Pfizer-BioNTech.

This session will cover key information including how the vaccine works, how it should be stored, prepared and administered and any contraindications, precautions and potential vaccine reactions. The Core Knowledge session covers key areas including legal aspects of vaccination. The Core Knowledge session must therefore be completed in addition to this vaccine-specific session. After completing this COVID-19 mRNA Vaccine BNT162b2 vaccine-specific session, you should complete the accompanying knowledge assessment.

You must be familiar with the specific recommendations for the COVID-19 vaccine you are delivering.

Are the programs accredited for continuous professional development (CPD) or continuing medical education (CME)?

Our courses have been developed and are delivered by Talisium's global network of content providers including universities and various professional bodies whose work underpins CPD for healthcare professionals.
Certificates of completion will be available and can be downloaded once a course has been completed. These can be used as evidence of learning for training and CPD purposes. You will need to check with your governing body about CPD standards and requirements.
Unless otherwise stated, certificates issued through Talisium are not qualifications of any formal assessment.

Do I need any prior qualifications or experience?

Our courses and programs have been designed to meet the needs of a broad range of trainees and qualified healthcare professionals. For most courses, we do not ask that you hold certain qualifications or meet certain criteria.
Some courses are aligned to specialist medical curricula so there is a certain level of medical knowledge required in these cases. On the whole, however, the courses and programs are accessible to a broad audience of learners.
