Seeking healthy, young volunteers, preferably under the age of 40 without medical problems (lower risk) to help marshal inside and outside at the Covid Vaccination Centre in Didcot.
A local Didcot GP has reached out to Harwell Campus on behalf of the three Didcot GP practices that are working together as Didcot Network to vaccinate the local population. Vaccinations will start in early January.
There are 15,000 people to vaccinate, with 2 visits each. This will involve many healthcare workers working at vaccinating the patients.
They need help with the non-medical side, with marshals to complete three hour stints indoors or outdoors. This may involve car parking duty/ wheelchair duty/ door duty/ check- in duty /observing post vaccination area/helping at exit.
Help is needed for the next few months, so anybody who can help even for a few hours very occasionally would be most welcomed. Vaccinating is taking place on every day of the week including Saturdays.
Volunteers are briefed on arrival for their shift. Any protective gear eg high vis waistcoats /face masks etc will be provided.
The Didcot Network is also asking if some local businesses may consider releasing their employees for a few hours occasionally in order to help with this essential work in fighting the Covid Pandemic.
Please contact ANDREA if you are able to assist and be on the volunteer register on the email :
