Volunteers needed to support local COVID-19 vaccination programme


Volunteers needed to support local COVID-19 vaccination programme


Your local NHS is getting ready to deliver a COVID-19 vaccination programme and they need your help.


They are looking for volunteer stewards across Essex and Suffolk to be at the forefront of the local fight against the virus – you could be part of it!


As a volunteer steward, you will help the vaccination process run smoothly and safely.


Local vaccination stations will be open from 8am-8pm seven days a week. Volunteers are asked to commit to individual sessions of four hours plus 15 minutes handover time.


This is an exciting opportunity to play your part in protecting the community and saving lives.
