Originally designed for use in the classroom, we are pleased to announce the Pfizer Superbugs antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and vaccines education resources are now available as a series of free home-learning modules.

 

The COVID-19 pandemic has made us all fully aware of how viruses can impact human health, but bacteria also pose a threat. These topical modules (accessible below) will introduce students to bacteria, viruses, infection, resistance and antibiotics and the role of vaccines in antimicrobial resistance. Materials outline what we can all do to help address AMR, including hygiene and appropriate use of antibiotics. The activities support PSHE education, health and wellbeing, science and citizenship.

Whether you are a teacher or parent, these materials are free for your young learners to use and have been created for 3 different age groups:
