Do you want to play a key part in helping to stop the spread of covid 19?
Southampton Voluntary Services is helping to match, process, and rota volunteers to help support the vaccine and testing centres.
There are lots of different centres giving out the vaccines and doing regular testing of people who do not have any symptoms. They need help from friendly approachable Marshalls in order to help the clinics run smoothly and provide a positive experience for those coming to receive their vaccine and test. PPE, lunch, and travel expenses will be provided. You will be put in touch with a clinical lead that will be supervising volunteers on the day and you will be given a full briefing about your tasks and role on the day. Your role may include, signposting visitors around the site, helping Marshall car parking, checking in with people following their vaccination or test.
The mass vaccination centre is in Oakley Road: Southampton City CCG Millbrook SO16 4GX and the testing site is at MerryOak Community Centre: Acacia Rd, Southampton SO19 7JY . There are other vaccination clinics happening at Health centres around the city. Please, see other volunteering opportunities if you would like to apply for those.
You can choose which centre and when you volunteer, you can volunteer for as many or as few slots as you like, in one or more of the centres.
The centres are looking for people with lower risk levels from covid to volunteer, so once you apply, we will need to find out your ‘covid age’ and risk level. To do that, you will be asked to find out your covid age and risk level by completing this short risk assessment: Covid-19 Medical Risk Assessment – Alama
You can find and complete the risk assessment by following the link and going to the bottom of the page. Please be aware that if your risk level is medium you may not be able to volunteer in this role, and if it is high unfortunately you won’t be eligible to volunteer in this role. There are other volunteering roles which are open to you regardless of your risk of covid, so please do search our website and if you would like to talk it through please contact us on firstname.lastname@example.org
