Whilst we previously vaccinated under the legal framework of a Patient Group Directive (PGD), we will now transition to the National Protocol. This protocol allows the vaccination of patients by non-registered Immunisers, and we are currently recruiting to fulfil these roles.
To support this new model, we have also created a new supervisory role and we are seeking experienced Vaccinators to step up to the position of Vaccinator Supervisor.
We are keen to hear from any of our Vaccinators who would be interested in this new role and continue to play a part in our vaccination programme. For those who have already expressed an interest, we have passed on your details to the Site Leads.
What will a Vaccinator Supervisor do?
The role of the Vaccinator Supervisor is to oversee the process and, using their clinical knowledge and experience of the programme, ensure that each vaccination can proceed safely.
Who is eligible to apply for the role of Vaccinator Supervisor?
Healthcare professionals suitable for this role include those listed below registered with the relevant professional body:
- Band 6 Nurse and above
- Occupational therapists, orthoptists, orthotists/prosthetists
- Speech and language therapists
- Dental hygienists and dental therapists
- Optometrists registered with the General Optical Council
Will Vaccinator Supervisors be administering vaccines too?
No. We want those who fulfil this supervisory role to be able to focus entirely on the ‘Pod’ they are overseeing.
