COVID-19 Immunization for Older Children and Adolescents

Purpose: While the complete BCCDC Immunization Competency Course is recommended for all new vaccine providers, it is recognized that in the context of the global pandemic, the need for an expedited immunization competency education process is essential to administer the COVID-19 vaccine in a timely manner (i.e., for those who will be providing COVID-19 vaccines only). As such, this course is available to health care providers who will be administering COVID-19 vaccine to those 12 years of age and older. The course includes additional immunization considerations for older children and adolescent populations, such as land marking/administration, informed consent (mature minor consent) and reducing immunization injection pain and anxiety.

Intended Audience: New vaccine providers involved in the COVID-19 Immunization Program.
