Good lecture, particularly around how to communicate with patients and families about vaccines and their concerns. I found it a great adjunct to my clinical knowledge of vaccines. Would recommend to anyone who is involved with immunisations.

EXCELLENT!! Such good depth but basic, as well as scientific information that I watched it twice trying to absorb it all.!! Love how she specifically and openly discussed vaccine concerns, effects and reactions as this is such a growing part of my role as nurse immuniser that requires such a high level of specialist knowledge/understanding to translate into an understandable and relatable conversation with published data to back up conversations with parents who use "dr Google and vaccine chat groups" to have with clients that can be a pivotal part of their vaccination decision making. This area specifically is and area that requires an increase in professional education opportunities,resource knowledge and access and even tutoring for the nursing staff in these roles providing immunisation services. More please.

"Prevention is much better than cure"" because there are some pathogens that has no treatment so it is more advantageous to have immunisation before things get worst.
