  1. Wondering how the mRNA vaccines are processed? Check out our newly released animation, “How mRNA Vaccines Work.”
  2. This infographic highlights the importance of getting children caught up on well-child visits and routine childhood vaccinations. The infographic is available to download and print.
  3. The latest on the COVID-19 global situation and monitoring vaccine safety. It is part of a larger pool of resources related to COVID-19 pandemic.
  4. Educational video on thrombosis with thrombocytopenia syndrome following adenoviruses vaccines against COVID-19.
  5. Training module The training module, in the form of presentation slides, provides a structured approach to assist health workers with interpersonal communication during COVID-19 vaccination consultations and is tailored to specific patient positions on vaccination. Participants are guided through 6 learning parts focusing on a combination of theory and practical skill building scenarios. Relevant COVID-19 vaccine and vaccination resources for health workers are provided to support vaccination consultations. This training is primarily for frontline health workers who will be vaccinators. Facilitator’s guide The Facilitator’s guide is designed to accompany the training module, providing detailed explanations and resources for all parts of the training module. A pre and post training self-reflection survey and post-training evaluation tool is also included. The facilitator’s guide is intended for training facilitators or Trainers of Trainers (ToTs) who will be conducting the training at the country level. Job aid The job aid is an interpersonal communication tool designed to support health workers in facilitating structured and collaborative COVID-19 vaccination conversations with patients, aiming to increase vaccine confidence and acceptance. It is intended for use in vaccination consultation settings.
  6. Pregnant women may safely receive inactivated vaccines, such as Tdap and the flu shot. They share everything with their babies. That means when a pregnant woman gets vaccines, she isn’t just protecting herself— she is giving the baby some early protection too.
  7. CDC regularly creates reports about the status of COVID-19 vaccine confidence in the United States, emphasizing major themes that influence vaccine confidence and uptake. The reports include analyses of multiple quantitative and qualitative data sources, ranging from social listening and web metrics to immunization survey data and CDC-INFO inquiries. The reports seek to identify emerging issues of misinformation, disinformation, and places where intervention efforts can positively increase vaccine confidence across the United States.
  8. Are the existing vaccines protective against all the COVID-19 variants of concern? Are the existing vaccines protective against all the COVID-19 variants of concern?
  9. Informations en français sur la sécurité des vaccins (Johnson & Johnson, Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna) contre COVID-19.
  10. This programme consists of seven knowledge sessions with accompanying assessments. It is recommended that those new to immunisation complete all seven sessions. Those with prior knowledge and experience in immunisation may wish to read through the relevant knowledge sessions for refresher training or undertake the assessment sessions to check on their knowledge. Learners may also wish to only undertake the sessions relevant to their role. On completion of the knowledge sessions and assessments, users can print a certificate as evidence of the sessions undertaken. A period of supervised practice to allow acquisition and observation of clinical skills and application of knowledge to practice for practitioners new to immunisation is also recommended, as is the completion of an immunisation competency checklist.
  11. The National Foundation for Infectious Diseases (NFID) convened a multidisciplinary group of experts at a virtual roundtable in January 2021 to share research, insights, and best practices for improving and harmonizing communication to the public about the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the importance of following evidence-based public health prevention measures.
  12. Updated resources regarding zoster vaccine for Australian adults: they include fact sheet, FAQs and a screening form for contraindications.
  13. Immunize Canada has assisted with developing the KT tools for the CARD system and the Hospital for SickKids (Toronto, Canada) through their AboutKidsHealth outreach program is also developing new tools for us to disseminate. These tools are for adults, children and healthcare providers ( https://immunize.ca/card-kids-and-adolescents ; https://immunize.ca/fr/systeme-card-pour-les-enfants-et-les-adolescents ; https://immunize.ca/fr/card-pour-les-adultes ; https://immunize.ca/card-adults ; https://immunize.ca/card ) and have been translated into French but CARD can be adapted to different local/cultural contexts and languages.
  14. COVAX, the largest and most complex global distribution of vaccines is under way, protecting the most vulnerable from COVID-19, wherever they are in the world. In order to end the acute phase of the pandemic and protect the world against the spread of new variants, the global roll-out must continue at unprecedented speed. The COVAX AMC has raised US$ 9.6 billion to date. This vital funding will enable COVAX to protect almost 30% of the population in 91 lower-income economies. But the COVAX delivery schedule has been hit hard by supply delays, and faces a supply shortfall of 190 million doses. To change the course of the pandemic, plug this short-term gap and help ensure equitable access to vaccines through COVAX: o Countries that have doses need to share them now – not later, when countries’ demand and ability to absorb doses will be met by hundreds of millions of doses that will be available through COVAX Facility deals. o Manufacturers need to prioritise COVAX. o Multilateral development banks must urgently release the funds to pay for health system preparedness to ensure countries can absorb the doses delivered. We call on the international community to reaffirm its support for the COVAX AMC and act urgently as One World Protected: Committed to Deliver.
