  11. This is a 36 page module from the healthcare workers training. This module describes the tasks a health worker needs to perform to ensure the quality of an immunization session. It starts with the preparation required at the health centre and the immunization site before the infants arrive. It next discusses the communication needed throughout each encounter with caregivers during the session. It then proceeds with assessment of infants before vaccination, the correct technique for giving vaccines, and instructions for closing sessions and recording data. It concludes with a newly developed checklist that can serve as a reminder to ensure safety before, during and after immunization sessions. This module touches on topics that are covered in more detail in other modules with references given in the text. It focuses mainly on infant immunization, but the principles may be applied to older age groups.
