Childhood Immunisation Schedule Webinar

Price FREE Register

Event description

This webinar funded by Country SA PHN, will guide GPs and general practice teams through the fundamentals of catch-up vaccinations, vaccine eligibility, vaccine doses and intervals between doses.

Catch-up vaccinations aim to provide optimal protection against disease as quickly as possible for a person who is unvaccinated or partially vaccinated. Catch-up vaccination may be for a single vaccine, or a full series which can be complex. While there are tools to assist providers with planning a catch-up schedule, understanding the fundamentals of catch-up vaccinations is essential.
