COVID Vaccination Support Volunteers

We are supporting the local various sites across Colchester with the COVID-19 vaccination programme and are looking for volunteers to support this.

The vaccination clinics will be open from 8am-6pm with shifts split 7.45am - 12.30pm / 1pm to 6pm

We are looking for volunteers to assist in different areas across the site and to ensure a smooth flow of patients.

  • Car Park assistants to ensure that patients are directed to the appropriate area to park. Also to guide them to the correct entrance.
  • Booking in and temperature check support.
  • Post vaccination observation area support

We ask that all volunteers ensure speed, safety and security; address any issues that arise or escalate to a Healthcare Professional if needed.

That you effectively communicate with the other areas’ representatives to avoid congestion.

Ensure that patients follow COVID guidelines such as social distancing and mask protection at all times.

Support patients who require additional support (carer/chaperone, additional language support). Provide enhanced support to those requiring it (e.g. those who cannot queue standing).

Assist in the prevention of overcrowding by ensuring the crowd limits in various parts of the centre are complied with.

The sites that we are currently supporting are: 

Colchester Primary Care Centre
Wimpole Road Surgery
Shrub End Surgery
Parsons Heath Surgery
Castle Gardens (East Hill) Surgery
