Specialize in immunization epidemiology and add to your nursing education You will achieve personal and professional growth in a short period of time”

The vaccination process carried out by nursing professionals involves extensive training, since it is not simply the act of pricking, but rather a whole protocol that allows vaccination to be carried out with all the guarantees of safety. 

With this Postgraduate Diploma, the student will learn everything related to the vaccination itself and the immunity process, starting with the history of vaccines and their contextualization in the present time as a basis for a deeper understanding of more specific concepts related to immunity and immunogenicity. 

The vaccination process is an act closely related to epidemiology as a study, since it relates in terms of health prevention different diseases and its fundamental primary prevention. The bases for understanding vaccines is knowledge of the diseases that cause them, their frequency of occurrence in vulnerable populations and the existing measures for their eradication and prevention. And, therefore, this specialization also aims to train nurses in this field. 

Thus, and as a fundamental issue, the Postgraduate Diploma enters fully into what might traditionally be expected from a study of the vaccine administration process. It begins with a small contextualization with basic aspects related to the act of vaccination itself and its legal basis to continue with everything related to the transport and conservation of vaccines and the cold chain, concepts prior to the actual administration of the vaccine and essential for professionals in this field.

Lastly, the student will study the future of vaccination: which vaccines are currently in development or in production, which diseases are expected to have a vaccine in the near future, and where we stand with the COVID-19 epidemic in relation to the act of vaccination.

In this Postgraduate Diploma we have proposed to offer you the most complete training on vaccination in a simple and easy to learn way. Also, being a 100% online training, you will have the opportunity to combine your study hours with the rest of your daily obligations, so that you can increase your training in a comfortable way.
