Increase your vaccination knowledge

This two-week course will help you gain an understanding of why vaccines can help protect the health of those living or working in prisons and those around them. What’s more, you’ll develop the skills to communicate about vaccines effectively.

This course has been developed by the European Consortium RISE-Vac who works to protect the health of those in prisons by increasing vaccine literacy.

Understand the importance of vaccination in prisons

You’ll start the course with an introduction to why infectious diseases are particularly important in the prison context. You’ll also examine what the main risk factors are before and during incarceration.

Next, you’ll examine the most relevant vaccine preventable diseases for people living and working in prisons.

Improve your conversations about vaccines

Finally, you’ll learn how you can effectively communicate about vaccinations. With this knowledge, you’ll be able to have quality conversations about vaccination with people living in prison as well as your friends and family.

By the end of the course, you’ll have the knowledge about vaccination in prison that you need to provide best care in this setting.
