Required training for registered COVID-19 vaccine providers

For registered COVID-19 vaccine providers, the vaccine coordinator and back-up coordinator at each site are required to watch this training and read MDH’s Interim COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Guide (PDF). Please have the guide available as you view the training. Even if you completed previous COVID-19 vaccination provider trainings, you will need to complete this training.

The training is recommended for all staff handling and administering vaccine. It will take you approximately 30 minutes to complete the course. You have the option to claim a 0.5 CEU. After completing the training, keep the certificate for your records.

Reminder, this online training and comprehensive review of the provider guide are mandatory for vaccine coordinators and back-up coordinators.

To complete the training, go to the MDH Learning Center to create an account and enroll in the COVID-19 Vaccination Providers Training. You can find the course in the catalog under Infectious Disease.

If you have questions about the training, email health.covid.vaccine@state.mn.us.
