COVID-19 Vaccination E-learning Programme 

Health Education England e-Learning for Healthcare has worked in partnership with Public Health England and NHS England and NHS Improvement to develop the COVID-19 Vaccination e-learning programme. The e-learning 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 programme currently consists of one core knowledge session, which covers subjects including vaccine eligibility and legal aspects, and an accompanying multiple-choice assessment session. All those undertaking this e-learning should complete the core knowledge session as this is designed to provide essential knowledge about COVID-19 and the key principles of vaccination needed to deliver the vaccine. 
This e-learning programme provides theoretical training. Practical training in vaccine administration, and assessment and sign-off competency is also required before administering the COVID-19 vaccine. 
Learners should also complete the vaccine specific session(s), when available, which will provide more detailed information about the vaccine(s). The assessment sessions should be completed after each knowledge session. More vaccine-specific sessions will be added as and when more COVID-19 vaccines become available. 
Additional, complementary, e-learning sessions including Basic Life Support, anaphylaxis and statutory and mandatory training are available to support vaccinators’ training and education.

Easy Read Flu Vaccination Awareness Leaflet 

This leaflet is an easy read flu vaccination awareness leaflet for people with a learning disability or people working or caring for those with a learning disability. An original flu leaflet has been developed by NATH and this leaflet has been made into an easy read document by Nottinghamshire County Council colleague. 
Flu can lead to complications that can be fatal for vulnerable groups. It is important that people understand vaccinations can prevent them from becoming unwell, and vaccinations also reduce the risk of the spread of infection therefore protecting others. 

Flu Vaccine Myth Busting 

Flu is an acute viral infection which can spread rapidly in closed communities. Common complications of flu can be bronchitis and/or pneumonia which can be fatal in some vulnerable population groups. Flu and associated complications cause around 8,000 deaths on average a year in England – and in some recent years this figure has exceeded 26,000 deaths. The flu vaccine is recommended for all frontline health and social care workers in England and offers the best and safest protection against flu. The flu vaccination is FREE for frontline health and social care workers, and not only protects us but prevents the spread of the virus to family members, the people we care for and the community
A collaborative piece of work by Nottinghamshire County Council, Nottinghamshire Alliance Training Hub and Fosse Healthcare has been developed to help bust some flu myths, and to raise awareness for the importance of health and social care staff having the flu vaccine and protecting our vulnerable population groups. 
Protect yourself, protect others – Get the flu vaccine!
