Immunization Lifelong Learners Short Course (ILLSC)

The ILLSC is an abbreviated one-day face-to-face course. When offered virtually, the course is two days. The ILLSC is designed to ensure health care personnel are trained in vaccine policy, vaccine safety, and effectiveness based on the Joint Regulation on Immunizations and Chemoprophylaxis for the Prevention of Infectious Diseases, Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) guidelines and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommendations for immunization practice. Recommended for health care personnel working within Military Treatment Facilities (MTFs) or affiliated field settings. You can view a sample ILLSC agenda here.
