COVID-19 Vaccine Rollout

Published: 6 January 2021


The greatest hope at the start of 2021 is the promise of the new vaccine. An effective vaccine is the best way to protect people from coronavirus. The NHS and local authorities are working hard to deliver the vaccine, as supplies continue to be distributed.

Vaccine Support Volunteers will work alongside NHS staff to ensure the effective roll out of the Covid-19 vaccine to Staffordshire residents. There are two main roles, each of which we expect to operate in teams of at least two. All volunteers will have a named, on-site coordinator.
