Vaccination Support Volunteers – Reigate & Banstead

Vaccination Support Volunteers – Reigate & Banstead

Reigate & Banstead Borough Council are working with the NHS to recruit and co-ordinate volunteers who can support vaccine services at sites in and around the borough.

PLEASE NOTE: THERE HAS BEEN A TREMENDOUS RESPONSE TO THE REQUEST FOR VOLUNTEERS TO SUPPORT THE VACCINATION CENTRES. NO ADDITIONAL VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED AT THIS TIME.

YOU CAN STILL REGISTER TO OFFER SUPPORT; HOWEVER YOU WILL ONLY BE CONTACTED IF FURTHER VOLUNTEERS ARE NEEDED.

Roles 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.

To register, please click on the button below which will take you to the Reigate & Banstead Borough Council registration page. (If you have already registered an interest for the Vaccination volunteer role via the VARB website, you do not need to register again as your details have been transferred).

Volunteers are also 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  andrew.mcgrath4@nhs.net.

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.
