Last chance to register for next Wiser Immunisers course!

Recommended Posts

Reaching and maintaining sufficiently high immunization coverage is not possible without the active support of health professionals. Unfortunately, many involved in vaccination are not sufficiently informed and may have doubts themselves about the safety or efficacy of the vaccines they are administering. 

To close this information gap, WHO and the European Society of Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID) developed the Wiser Immunisers online course, which is now offered through the ESPID website. The course is set to begin for the third time on 17 October, and registration is open until 10 October. Course participants earn 12 EU CME credits, and their feedback following the first two runs of the course has been very positive.  

The ESPID online course on vaccination provides internet-based training on:

  • vaccine-preventable diseases including clinical presentation, diagnosis, management, treatment, prognosis and public health implications
  • vaccines and their side effects and contraindications
  • communicating with patients and caregivers about vaccination, including addressing common misconceptions and tackling vaccine hesitancy.

More information about the course and how to register is available on the ESPID website:
