3. Vaccination sites - volunteering

The NHS has a huge task to vaccinate millions of people as quickly as possible to reduce the spread of COVID-19.   

Can you help?

We are working with the NHS to recruit and co-ordinate volunteers who can support vaccine services at sites in and around the borough.

They need volunteers who can help ensure the safe and smooth running of vaccination services. Roles currently include:

  • Marshalling - both indoors and outdoors
  • Ushering and orienteering patients around the site

All volunteers will be given appropriate supervision, direction and personal protective equipment to ensure their own safety and that of other volunteers, staff and patients.

Volunteers may also be required at Epsom Race Course, which is one of the large vaccination sites just outside the borough. You can register your interest directly with them by emailing  [email protected].

Your support is greatly appreciated.

Background

The NHS was the first health system in the world to roll out a clinically-approved, safe and effective vaccine, and they are working now to deliver it to those who would benefit most in hundreds of hospitals, local vaccination services and care homes across the country, with larger Vaccination Centres also standing ready to be used when supplies allow.

This will be a huge task, and vaccinating millions of people as quickly as possible, whilst at the same time as keeping other vital services going, will require lots more help and that's where you come in.
