Seasonal Vaccination Programme

Following the PSNC announcement that flu vaccination service will be a new advanced service, we have developed the following guide and training programme.

Training guide (based on latest available information)

Online training only required for Anaphylaxis/CPR: For those who have completed face to face training in last 2 years, are CPPE accredited and prepared to self-declare competence. Guidelines are not clear but in our view you should have administered at least 10 vaccinations in last 18 months and feel confident. If the NHS requirements change, you can add on face to face training later and offset the cost.

If you do not meet the above criteria face-to-face training is a requirement.

All PGDs have validity of 1 year. For Best Practice and to run a private vaccination clinic we strongly recommend revalidation.


Avicenna online training:

The course has additional HD video clips which cover techniques for Adrenaline & Pneumococcal injection.

Provides full guidance and video demonstration on Anaphylaxis/CPR and a competence test.

Private PGDs including Influenza (includes intranasal Fluenz), Hepatitis B, Meningitis ACWY, Pneumococcal PPV and Pneumococcal PCV at no extra cost.

Full access to information which cover items such as a guide to Influenza, Hepatitis, Meningitis and Adrenaline, SOPs, customer questionnaire, how to set up your vaccination clinic, promoting your service, FAQs, needle stick injury. Also there is a section on Hajj & Umrah vaccination advice and a template to issue internationally recognised certificates.


Face-to-Face and online training includes:

This training is only required if the above criteria are not met or if they would like to refresh their training and includes:

• Recovery position and basic life support (including children)
• Injection technique intramuscular
• Injection technique sub-cutaneous
• Intranasal technique
• Reconstitution technique
• Competence declaration
• Booklet covering all the online information
• Access to our webinar which has been created to aid the completion of the CPPE influenza pack.

Last year we trained over 800 pharmacists and are listed on the PSNC website as a training provider. Our online training is provided by Mike Bereza who is accredited trainer (PTTLS). Additionally, we guarantee that should the NHS requirement change we will update the information accordingly.
