This series of six eLearning modules (eModules) was created by the iREACH team at the Association of Immunization Managers (AIM) to increase knowledge and support community conversations about the flu, COVID-19, and basic information about vaccines and vaccine safety.

Please always complete these eModules alongside a review of the latest recommendations and information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) website, as some information in the eModules will change over time.

Intended audience: These accessible, easy-to-use eModules and supplemental materials are available in English and Spanish. While the eModules are available to everyone, they were specially created with community health workers, promotoras, trusted messengers and community champions in mind.

Learn how to best use these modules as a training tool by reviewing our train-the-trainer guide.

Accommodations: All iREACH resources are designed with accessibility in mind but might not be fully Section 508-compliant. If you need accommodations to use this resource, please contact AIM.

Length: Each self-paced module takes, on average, 30 minutes to complete.

Module order: We recommend that you start with the vaccine basics and vaccine safety basics modules, as they build the foundation for the vaccine-specific modules. Then we recommend following this with the flu disease basics, flu vaccine basics, COVID-19 disease basics, and COVID-19 vaccine basics modules.

Certificates of completion: When you finish the evaluation at the end of each module, you will receive a digital certificate of completion that includes a printable option.

Registration and fees: The courses are free, and you do not need to register to take them.

Content for this training series was created by the AIM iREACH team and subject matter experts.

Vaccination Education Modules

Vaccine Basics


REACH (Racial and Ethnic Approaches to Community Health) is a national program administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to reduce racial and ethnic health disparities. AIM has partnered with the CDC, through a program called iREACH, to engage and support participating REACH organizations in their efforts to address racial and ethnic disparities related to COVID-19 and flu vaccination coverage. AIM is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to establishing a nation free of vaccine-preventable diseases.

The development of the COVID-19 Disease Basics and COVID-19 Vaccine Basics eModules was supported by the CDC as part of a financial assistance award totaling $3,300,000, with 100 percent funding by the CDC. The development of the Vaccine Basics, Vaccine Safety Basics, Flu Disease Basics, Flu Vaccine Basics eModules was supported by the CDC as part of a financial assistance award totaling $3,250,000 with 100 percent funding by the CDC.
