Be part of the historic response to Covid-19...
To support the administering of COVID-19 vaccinations and booster jabs, Manchester is in need of more volunteer marshals. Macc and Volunteer Centre Manchester are supporting Manchester Health and Care Commissioning (MHCC) with its recruitment to support Manchester's vaccination programme at community-based sites across the city.
At present, the majority of vaccination sites urgently need *Volunteer Marshals to safely direct patients on-site when they; arrive, receive their vaccination and exit, along with supporting car park traffic and handing out PPE and information.
To express your interest in supporting at the vaccine sites, register here and follow the link in your confirmation email. Once you have filled in your details, you will receive an email with details of the vaccination sites that require volunteers and how to book a shift.
Vaccination sites that require volunteers are:
- Newton Heath Health Centre
