Be Your Own Hero - World Immunisation Week , 24th - 30th April 2021
We are delighted to share with you details of an educational programme which Pfizer Healthcare Ireland has developed to coincide with World Immunisation Week 2021 (24th – 30th April), and beyond.
The “Be Your Own Hero” resource pack is named after an Irish medical ‘hero’ Dr Francis Rynd of Baconstown, Co. Meath, who is credited with inventing the hollow syringe in 1844.
The content was developed by Pfizer Vaccines Medical Affairs team in collaboration with a group of Irish classroom educators teaching (primary) students of all ages and abilities. The educational programme is broadly based upon the HSE immunisation schedules for infants and children (primary and secondary school). Some information is also provided on SARS-CoV-2 in light of the ongoing pandemic.
