Covid vaccination rollout online training surpasses two million

Online training for the Covid-19 vaccination programme, ran by Health Education England (HEE), has now reached the milestone of two million session launches since it went live in December.

In total, more than 217,000 individual users have now accessed the e-Learning for Healthcare (e-LfH) programme.

The training represents an essential part of the vaccination recruitment and training process.

The e-LfH programme provides core training about Covid-19, the key principles of immunisation, how vaccine should be safely stored, prepared and administered, and advice on contraindications, precautions and possible reactions to the vaccines.

Workers from across the health and care sector are accessing the training, with the main users being from the nursing, midwifery, medical and dental sectors.

Patrick Mitchell, Director of Innovation, Digital and Transformation, Health Education England, said: “The e-LfH programme is an integral and vital part of the vaccination effort being rolled out so swiftly to protect us all against the virus.

“It’s at the heart of what we do – it’s free, easy to access and is giving people from across the health and social care workforce the knowledge they need to promote and carry out the vaccination programme with confidence.”

The resources are being regularly updated as information about the virus and vaccines evolves.

More information about the training and how to access it can be found by visiting the e-LfH website here.
