NaTHNaC 'Getting to grips...' drop-in events for Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres

From March 2021 the clinical team at NaTHNaC have been hosting regular lunchtime sessions on Zoom to help with COVID-19 related travel health issues. Health professionals working in Yellow Fever Vaccination Centres in England, Wales and Northern Ireland are invited to email uclh.nathnac@nhs.net with questions and comments for discussion during these events.

Please continue to use the NaTHNaC advice line for traveller-specific enquiries.

At this time when travel is disrupted, members of the NaTHNaC clinical team will focus on the current COVID-19 related issues faced by health professionals advising those who are legally allowed to travel. We will also highlight the resources available and consider the challenges of keeping up to date with COVID-19 related travel issues.

We will address as many submitted questions as possible during these 30-minute sessions.

This event is only available on the day and will not be available after the event. More opportunities to join these events will follow in the coming months.

Date: 22 July 2021, 12:30 to 13:30

Please submit your questions for this event by 16 July 2021.
