Medical Assistants are important patient advocates and play a vital role in helping to strengthen the bond between the practice and the patient/ family, increasing the probability that people will complete their immunizations and other well care. CDC recommends that all health care personnel who administer vaccines receive comprehensive, competency-based training on vaccine administration policies and procedures before administering vaccines. This live training will provide attendees information on proper vaccine administration, vaccine storage and handling, documentation of vaccines in WebIZ (Arkansas's Immunization Information System), vaccine schedules, and adverse events.

This training is made possible through a grant from the Blue & You Foundation for a Healthier Arkansas

Below are the dates and locations for the trainings we currently have scheduled. Please check here for updates to the schedule. 

By attending, you will receive 3 AAMA (American Association of Medical Assistants) approved CEU’s.  Your attendance will automatically be submitted to the AAMA. 

Early Bird Registration is $15 (see registration information for Early Bird deadlines)

Regular Registration $20   

Student Registration $10

Seating is limited to ensure the class size is small enough for adequate competency assessments.
