Staff and volunteers in the voluntary community and social enterprise sector have played a major role in the community response to Covid-19. We want to make sure all workers who directly provide frontline support AND who are working with people clinically vulnerable to Covid-19 across the city can work safely and access Covid-19 vaccinations as soon as possible, wherever they work, whoever they work for, whether as an employee or as a volunteer.
Covid-19 Booster Vaccinations – National booking service now open for frontline health and care workers
If you are in an eligible role, and it is at least six months after your second dose of vaccine, you can book your appointment.

How we are going to organise this
The scale of this is of course unlike any vaccination programme we have seen before so firstly we need to understand the numbers of people in the workforce who need to be vaccinated and of those, how many are at particular risk.
What you need to do
- Identify someone in your organisation who is going to act as the lead on vaccination for your workforce
- Work out how many people are in your workforce are front-line health or social care workers - working directly, face to face, with the public
- Work out many people in your work force may be at higher risk – this information from the NHS will help you assess who these people are Who's at higher risk from coronavirus (COVID-19) – NHS (www.nhs.uk)
- Share that information with us by completing the form below
Please fill in this form and submit it to us as soon as possible.
(PLEASE NOTE: by completing the form and clicking ‘submit’ you give us permission to share the information with the NHS and Council colleagues who are organising the vaccination rota. It will not be used for any other purpose.)
Completing the form on Macc’s website doesn’t book you a vaccination – it gets your organisation’s contact details into the system and helps the team organising the vaccinations understand how much capacity is needed
After you have completed the form, you need to start building your list of staff and volunteers who need to be vaccinated and have access to regular testing. You will need to record:
- First name
- Gender identity
- Date of birth
- NHS number* (not essential but will save time when staff go for their vaccination, download the NHS app to find it)
- GP surgery
- Mobile number
- Received first vaccination
- Received second vaccination
- If the person has declined vaccination
- If the person is unable / not eligible to receive vaccination
- Date and result of their most recent test
