The roll-out of the COVID-19 vaccination programme in Primary Care across Doncaster, and as this is the largest vaccination programme ever embarked on in Doncaster, volunteers are being sought to support marshalling the five vaccination sites across the town.
The marshalling support will involve the following duties;
● Greeting and directing those people being vaccinated to the correct place within the venue ● Taking temperatures/asking questions re symptoms ● Informing attendees about COVID safety measures ● Maintaining flow and social distancing ● Observing people for 15 minutes post vaccination ● Support to anyone requiring additional assistance eg mobility issues ● Provide general support to staff working at the site ● Maintain confidentiality at all times ● Keep good time keeping and show regular commitment
As a Vaccination Marshal Volunteer you will not be asked to provide medical assistance/advice or personal care to patients
The role will be an active one and volunteers will need to be mobile/on their feet for the duration of the session. This role is open to those aged 16 and over.
The rotas are subject to change according to the availability of the vaccine and this can be at short notice. Typically a session will be from 8am to 1pm and 1pm to 6pm daily. Volunteers will be required to attend a briefing on arrival at site and therefore arrive 15 minutes prior to the session start time. It may also be necessary to stay on-site for a de-brief/handover at the end of each session.
