Flu Jab Training - Course Information

We offer two flu jab training courses; a full face-to-face workshop, and, an online refresher course. 

Both courses are up to date and meet the guidelines of Public Health England National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for vaccination training. More informaiton about the standards can be found here

Whilst our course is not accredited by the Royal Pharmaceutical Society, it exceeds all of the RPS, GPHC, and PSNC standards for pharmacist training. We chose not to have our course accredited by the RPS because this is not an NHS requirement and the cost of RPS accreditation would result in an increase in cost of the course unnecessarily.

This page provides more information about what is covered in both the face-to-face workshop training and the online refresher training courses. Please scroll down to view the information.
