Pharmacy Guild Immunisation Course

The Pharmacy Guild of Australia’s ‘Pharmacy Guild Immunisation Course’ has been developed to provide the knowledge and skills required for pharmacists to deliver vaccination services to the community.

The course provides a background to immunisation in Australia, familiarises pharmacists with the resources that are available to support immunisation services, outlines the regulatory requirements which cover the provision of immunisation services within pharmacy, and provides practical skill-based training in safe injection technique.

Cost includes workshop materials and catering (morning tea and lunch)
