At Health Academy we are pleased to offer a comprehensive set of Flu Patient Group Direction (PGD) packages with training options to suit your exact needs. You can select from a number of different PGD and training options. These range from PGDs only, to a full Foundations of Immunisation with Seasonal Influenza and video assessment option. With combined PGD and training options we issue certificates and PGDs on completion.
Who is this product suitable for?
The Flu PGD and training packages are suitable for any healthcare professionals wishing to administer the annual flu vaccine. This could include practice nurses, pharmacists, occupational health clinicians or any other health care practitioner who is able to administer vaccines under a PGD.
So what PGDs have we included?
Because of the range of vaccine products available, we will include the full set of Injectable flu vaccine PGDs available in the UK for the coming flu season. For this coming season these will likely be:
- Quadrivalent inactivated influenza vaccine – QIVe
- Quadrivalent influenza cell cultured vaccine – QIVc
- Adjuvanted trivalent influenza vaccine – aTIV
- Recombinant quadrivalent influenza vaccine – (QIVr)
- High dose trivalent influenza vaccine – TIV-HD
And what training do we include?
As well as the PGDs themselves we also have the training packages to suit your needs. Whether you are brand new to immunising or a seasoned vaccinator we have a package for you. Take a look at the following options and then select your package from the dropdown above:
Flu PGDs only
Choose this option if you are able to confirm you are up to date with the recommended immunisation and flu training.
Flu PGDs with Seasonal Influenza (Flu)
If you are up to date with immunisation training but need a specific update on this year’s flu strains and vaccine products choose this option.
Flu PGDs with Flu and Annual Immunisation Update
This option is suitable for experienced immunisers who need an annual immunisation update.
Flu PGDs with Flu and Foundations of Immunisation Online
If you are completely new to immunising, but will be able to have practical immunisation technique assessed by someone in your organisation, then this is the option for you. We have also included Anaphylaxis Management in this course.
Flu PGDs with Flu and Foundations of immunisation Online with practical video assessment.
For those new to immunising who require a practical assessment of immunisation technique, we recommend this option. This would be equivalent to face to face training (supervised practice is also recommended). We have also included Anaphylaxis Management in this course.
What have we not included?
In this immunisation training course we do not cover Travel vaccines, Covid-19 vaccines, or any other UK schedule vaccinations. Please purchase the relevant course packages or add-on courses from the main store area if you would like these included.
We also have Basic Life support available in a separate course.
Please also note that Public Health England (PHE) strongly recommended a period of supervised practice in addition to comprehensive training when the practitioner is new to immunisation.
