MRC members with a nursing and other medical licenses, you are invited to a Vermont Department of Health (VDH) Protocols Skills training. This is an opportunity to review side-by-side with state nurses, VDH’s procedures and guidelines for providing Immunizations (shots), TB placement and reading, blood drawing, and blood pressure readings. This is not an introductory lesson on how to perform these skills, but a review and to demonstrate you know VDH’s process for providing these skills.  There are hand-on stations for the skills.

Folks who complete this training and future ones down the line, will be given priority and opportunities to perform skills at TB testing, blood drawing, and immunizations clinics we may have to set-up.  This spring/summer we will need licensed individuals with pediatric blood drawing competence to help with another PFOA testing clinic (desire these individuals to have gone through the training).   Additionally, this may open the door for possibility for MRC assistance with immunizations, if VDH expands providing HPV immunization at schools.

Who Can Attend: Individuals currently licensed for and have received prior training to provide all or one of the following: Immunizations (shots), TB placement and reading, and/or blood drawing.  Generally, this includes licensed nurses, physicians, and some medical assistants, perhaps other licenses. But you should know if your license allows.

This training is limited to first 15 MRC members.  We are hoping to offer this training on Saturday or Sunday in April, date to TBD. 

Please email derek.pitts@vermont.gov if you wish to attended. RSVP by March 23rd.
