Last year, thousands of people stepped forward to offer their time and skills to support NHS England’s COVID-19 vaccination campaign. Because of them we were able to roll out primary vaccinations to millions, saving thousands of lives and making the connections we value possible once more.
With the emergence of the Omicron variant, the vaccination programme was ramped up further. But while millions of booster vaccinations have already been administered, there's still much work to done. So join us now and you too could play a crucial role in protecting the connections that matter to us all. We are fully committed to providing the widest opportunities for skilled training and development as soon as you join the vaccine programme. Many people who are part of the programme have now begun a new career in the NHS across a huge variety of roles-over 11,500 people have stayed with us in paid jobs or training programmes
As the job title suggests, you will be responsible for delivering vaccinations to patients who visit the vaccination centre.
Working as part of a dynamic team, you will ensure your vaccination station is configured in line with the requirements of the mass vaccination delivery model. Supervised by a registered healthcare professional, you’ll also take responsibility for the safe disposal of clinical waste and for changing your PPE in line with national guidelines. Strict adherence to infection control practices between individuals will also be required.
You’ll prepare and administer the dose to already consented and assessed individuals. Observing the patient’s immediate reaction to the vaccine is vital, and you may need to refer them to a registered healthcare professional or the post-vaccination observation area. At busy times, you may also need to help update records and support with other administrative tasks.
