Join the team supporting the vaccine booster rollout
Stewarding / Event Support volunteers needed for Reading Voluntary Action (RVA)
Building on the success of our support for the first wave of Covid-19 vaccinations at the start of the year we are looking to build our team to support the winter booster programme.
Volunteers will support in various roles to help those attending the site to receive their vaccines. This may include car park marshalling, supporting with form filling, check-in and out and post-vaccination observation.
Complete the form HERE to join the pool of volunteers. Once registered we will contact you on a regular basis to ask about your availability and create rotas for the coming weeks.
No specific skills are required but you will need a reasonable level of physical fitness as you will be on your feet for extended periods of time. A calm and welcoming manner with strong communication skills is also important.
