Program Overview
This educational activity will promote school-located vaccination (SLV) as a measure to improve and maintain a safe and healthy environment for students and the community. With many students behind on routine vaccinations and the COVID-19 vaccines anticipated approval for children under the age of 12 pending, SLV is a means to maintain a safe school environment. A brief overview of the AIM/NASN E-scan and Roundtable documents will be shared, and a state immunization director, school nurse leader, and school leader will provide insight on how their role champions SLV’s and the importance of their role to the success of SLV’s.

Learning Outcomes
As a result of participating in this educational activity, learners will be able to:
  • Compare and contrast at least 3 options for strengthening school located vaccination clinics.
  • Articulate 3 desired impacts of SLVs from the recently published roundtable report: School-Located Vaccination Clinics for COVID-19 and Influenza.
  • Develop 3 actionable steps to implement or expand SLVs.

Intended Audience
This continuing education program is a knowledge-based activity developed to meet the educational needs of registered nurses who are interested in child and adolescent health.
