Renewed Callout for Vaccination Volunteers!
COVID-19 Vaccination Centre Steward
Your Lewisham GP practices, who are delivering the majority of Covid vaccinations in the borough, are now moving to reinstate full pre-Covid crisis services, but we need help to continue vaccinating all our residents in order for us to make us all safe. To do all this, we need volunteer help from our community. You will be participating in an exciting time in history where we are working together to end the global pandemic.
We need volunteers to help us at five locations across Lewisham:
- Downham Health & Leisure Centre, 7-9 Moorside Rd, Bromley BR1 5EP
- The Jenner Practice, 201 Stanstead Rd, Forest Hill SE23 1HU
- St Johns Medical Centre, 56-60 Loampit Hill, Lewisham SE13 7SX
- Sydenham Green Group Practice, 26 Holmshaw Close, Sydenham SE26 4TH
- The Waldron Health Centre, Amersham Vale, New Cross SE14 6LD
If you have common sense, initiative, and enjoy talking to people from all backgrounds and walks of life, we want to hear from you! You do not need any specific skills or experience beyond patience and kindness.
At the vaccination sessions, you will direct residents inside and outside the venues, offering assistance and information and ensuring that everyone remains safe and socially distanced. We will provide training; PPE (masks and gloves); regular Covid testing; and Covid vaccination. You may be eligible to claim necessary expenses to ensure you are not out of pocket in volunteering with us. You can of course choose which of the five sites you’d prefer to work at.
This is an opportunity to be part of the largest mass vaccination ever undertaken. Your contribution will be essential!
As we move into a new phase of vaccinations, we are asking volunteers to commit to four- to five-hour shifts between 8.15 a.m. and 8 p.m Monday to Saturday. Days and times may vary between different centres.
