As a Steward Volunteer (COVID-19 vaccinations) you will help by guiding people at COVID-19 vaccination sites. You may also be asked to support with stewarding at flu vaccination sites and support the NHS with non-clinical tasks such as signposting people around a health site or helping them check in.
This role includes being part of a team by ensuring the smooth arrival on site of people coming in for vaccinations.
You will ensure the efficient flow of people to clinical assessment, vaccination and exit while respecting social distancing. You’ll also identify people who require additional support.
This role will require volunteers to commit to at least 2 x 6 hour shifts at a vaccination site each month.
A DBS is not required for this role, although you will be asked to declare any unspent convictions as part of the application process.
Local NHS teams will call forward Steward Volunteers as they are needed and this will vary by area, so don’t worry if you are not asked to help straight away.
You may like to apply for the Community Response Volunteer role alongside the Steward Volunteer role. These volunteers support local vulnerable people with shopping and prescription collections.
