    "I not only vaccinated patients, but also took part in work shops which were (for) educating patients and my peers about liver diseases"

    (BTW, if you don't add the adj. clause "which....", the sentence can be read as "I not only .....but also I took part in .......educating patients and my peers about liver diseases", which is of course, not what you mean.)
