Vaccine specific training resources in respect of Yellow Fever.

Training resources

Please note:  These educational resources continue to be updated as required to support this programme but do not replace the clinical judgement of practitioners.  Practitioners should refer regularly to the Green Book chapter 35: Yellow Fever and other equivalent authoritative texts.

This eLearning resource has been developed by NHS Education for Scotland in partnership with Public Health Scotland (PHS) with the aim of helping to support registered healthcare practitioners to gain the knowledge they require to safely and effectively deliver yellow fever vaccines.

In Scotland, yellow fever vaccines can only be administered from yellow fever vaccination centres, designated by PHS. 

The resource contains learning activities and an assessment which must be passed to achieve completion. The 100% pass rate is a Public Health Scotland requirement for designated Scottish yellow fever vaccination centres. The resource may take up to three hours to complete depending on your previous experience and learning. Before you are able to undertake vaccination practice you need to demonstrate that you have achieved the required knowledge and skills.  NES/PHS have developed an accompanying proficiency assessment document for registered healthcare practitioners.

Practitioners should ensure that they are adhering to their employer’s clinical and educational governance arrangements. There may be additional learning requirements, for example practical aspects of vaccine administration. For those new to vaccination practice, generic immunisation practice workforce education for example, Promoting Effective Immunisation Practice can be accessed through Turas Learn.
