Pharmacy Guild Immunisation Course



The Pharmacy Guild Immunisation Course is a recognised and accredited vaccination training course for pharmacists to provide vaccination services to the community.

This blended course outlines the regulatory requirements which mandate the provision of immunisation services within pharmacy as well as the knowledge and resources necessary to support immunisation services. This is followed by a one day face-to-face workshop, providing practical-skill based learning and training in safe injection techniques.

Course format:

  1. Online pre-learning modules – must be completed prior to attending face-to-face workshop
  2. Vaccination workshop – face-to-face training where participants develop skills and are assessed on injection techniques
