COVID-19 Vaccination Programme Vaccinator

With clinical trials progressing well we are preparing to deliver COVID-19 vaccines to millions of at-risk people across the country as soon as they are approved by the MHRA, the official UK regulator.

To prepare, we are looking for experienced vaccinators and those who are willing to be trained to once again put themselves forward to lend a hand.

The Department for Health and Social Care recently consulted on temporary changes to legislation allowing a wider group of staff to vaccinate with appropriate training.

Work could commence from December 2020. But if December feels too soon for you, please don’t deter from expressing your interest now as you could join us later.

As a COVID-19 Vaccinator, you will be responsible for administering the vaccine to citizens working in a team of NHS colleagues and volunteers. You will also be responsible for:

  • Set up of the vaccination station.
  • Administration of the vaccine under the PGD/ National Protocol.
  • Safe handling of clinical waste and change of PPE as per national guidelines.

Adherence to infection control practices between individuals.

We're looking for staff to work in the FYLDE COAST. This may be at a Mass Vaccination Site or at a community site within the Fylde Coast. At this time we're unable to confirm the exact location of these sites, but will discuss possible locations with you if you're successful in your application, and take into consideration your home location wherever possible.
