Be part of the historic response to COVID-19...

Macc and Volunteer Centre Manchester are supporting Manchester Health and Care Commissioning (MHCC) with its recruitment to support Manchester's COVID-19 vaccination programme at community-based sites across the city.

How to get involved

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, please visit the volunteer recruitment microsite at:

https://manchestercommunitycentral.org/vaccination

Here you can choose where you would like to support from locations across the City of Manchester. Your details will be passed on to the team in charge, and they will contact you if they require your help.

If you require any further information about this role, please contact the MHCC Engagement Team by telephone on 0161 213 1756 or email mhcc.engagement@nhs.net.
