This two-week course will help you gain an understanding of vaccines and why they can help protect the health of those living or working in prison and those around them.

There are two courses: one for vaccine trained staff and one for non-vaccine trained staff. You’ll learn why infectious diseases are particularly important in the prison context and what the main risk factors are before and during incarceration. 

The course is available from the 1st of March, and can be accessed via the links below:
