The NHS urgently needs more volunteers to support the Booster Vaccine programme locally

Volunteers will not be expected to administer the vaccine and medical staff will be on hand at all times for support, but help is required with roles including:

*Navigators – to meet and greet people on arrival, take temperatures, ask relevant questions etc.

*Wellbeing volunteers – to staff the post-vaccination room.

*Car park marshals – to guide people to the correct building/rooms.

If you think you can help in these very difficult times, or if you can forward this to others, or would like to find out more, please email vaxvols@cvstendring.or.uk or log-on to:

If you are already volunteering at any of the Vaccination Centres / Buses or GP Surgeries, please ignore this request – and very many thanks for all that you are doing!
