What’s not included?

Because this course is a travel health update it does not cover Seasonal Influenza, Covid-19, or other UK immunisation schedule vaccines. However, the relevant course packages or add-on courses can be purchased from Health Academy.

Basic Life support and Anaphylaxis are also available in separate courses.

In order for beginners to have a comprehensive understanding of travel health we recommend either our Fundamentals of Travel Health online course or our Introduction to Travel Health virtual course.

Other considerations

Please note the statement in the ‘National Minimum Standards and Core Curriculum for Immunisation Training for Registered Healthcare Practitioners. (PHE). ‘  That when the practitioner is new to immunisation a period of supervised practice in addition to comprehensive training is strongly recommended.

    Thank you to Alys Bunce who delivered this 1-day course. Her up-to-date knowledge and obvious enthusiasm for Travel Health made it so interesting and informative. Particularly useful was the signposting to resources to check for any health and policy updates. I also loved the 5 Ts of Tropical disease framework. Thank you!

    Alys is an amazing trainer. Her love of the subject is projected on to the students, making it a pleasure to be part the course. I loved the interaction and her gentle correction if the answers are not quite correct. She encourages and bills confidence. Esther Arnold
