Immunization Module: Immunization Safety

Study Session 7  Immunization Safety

Introduction

Immunization programmes will only be successful if immunization is practised safely. In this study session, you will first be reminded about how to keep vaccines safe and give injections safely (already taught earlier in this Module). You will also learn in more detail how to identify vaccine reactions and what to do if adverse events following immunization (AEFIs) occur. Finally, we will explain about methods of safe disposal for used injection equipment, discarded vaccines, vials and ampoules, and other waste such as used cotton swabs.
