"Before vaccination day

  • Teachers attend student education sessions by the school nurse and reinforce messages.
  • Teachers help with the return and safe storage of the signed consent form by the legal guardian.
  • Teachers work with students and the school nurse to identify and accommodate student requests from the CARD system (Comfort, Ask, Relax, Distract).
  • Teachers practise the CARD system with students to help them cope during vaccination." - Preparing for vaccinations at school: A guide for school staff
