Vaccinations are integral components of preventive healthcare and have had a profound impact on public health, notably reducing the global prevalence of infectious diseases and even leading to the eradication of certain deadly illnesses, such smallpox and rinderpest. However, despite these notable achievements, vaccine-preventable diseases remain a substantial concern, and underestimating the pivotal role of vaccinations can have severe consequences. 

Join us in person for an engaging two-day workshop on the importance and value of vaccination.

DAY 1: Learn about the foundational aspects of the immune response, the importance of vaccination, and challenges to vaccination.

DAY 2: A practical discussion on the vaccination process, strategies to address vaccine hesitancy, and the costs and value of vaccination.

Upon completion of the workshop, you will be able to:

  1. Discuss the important role of vaccination in reducing the prevalence and burden of vaccine-preventable diseases.
  2. Address common objections to vaccination and apply motivational interviewing skills to promote vaccine confidence.
  3. Assess the value of vaccination from an economic, social, and health perspective.
