Immunization:  You Call the Shots-Module Eighteen- Vaccine Administration (e-Learn)
WB2502

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION:
Appropriate vaccine administration is a critical component of a successful immunization program. Vaccine administration errors are potentially dangerous occurrences that many immunization
providers miss. This training addresses knowledge gaps in proper vaccine administration. It highlights common mistakes and is designed to train providers to avoid administration errors by applying the “Rights of Medication Administration” to each encounter when vaccines are administered.

OBJECTIVES:
At the conclusion of the session, the participant will be able to:

  1. Identify the Rights of Medication Administration for Vaccines.
  2. Define the steps for proper vaccine administration.
  3. Recognize the recommended routes and sites for vaccine administration.
  4. Identify recommended vaccine administration best practices.        
  5. Describe best practices to prevent vaccine administration errors.  
  6. Locate resources on current immunization administration practice.          
  7. Implement disease detection and prevention health care services (e.g., smoking cessation, weight reduction, diabetes screening, blood pressure screening, immunization services) to prevent health problems and maintain health.
