COVID-19 vaccination: intramuscular injection technique

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

COVID-19 vaccinations are a key strategy to facilitate emergence from the current pandemic and the most effective way to protect the population, saving thousands of lives. It is hoped that the programme will expand, with a view to offering vaccination to all adults by the autumn of 2021 (Department of Health and Social Care (DHSC), 2021). The current COVID-19 vaccination programme is the largest seen in NHS history (NHS England and NHS Improvement, 2020), with an estimated 80 000-strong workforce recruited, a significant number of those from fields of nursing. As such, effective and evidence-based intramuscular (IM) injection technique is an essential training requirement for all of those involved in vaccine administration within the programme.
