COVID-19 vaccination in Australia

CPD hours:

Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) is caused by severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2). The COVID-19 pandemic has led to a dramatic loss of human life and has severely affected the global economy.

Mass vaccination is the only viable strategy for ending the pandemic and preventing further morbidity, mortality, and economic losses.  

This module provides an overview of COVID-19 vaccination in the Australian context. It outlines conventional vaccine technology and the novel methods employed in producing the COVID-19 vaccines. Detailed information about the vaccines with provisional approval for use in Australia is provided.

Finally, the module discusses the process of vaccine administration and general recommendations by the Australian Technical Advisory Group on Immunisation (ATAGI).

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
