As the role out of COVID Vaccinations begins at pace across the East Riding of Yorkshire, the East Riding Clinical Commissioning Group and GP Practices across our region are reaching out to the Voluntary Sector and its incredible volunteers to play a part in supporting many of our most vulnerable to receive the vaccination in the coming weeks and months.
Working as part of the Surgery team, directed by the GP lead on site, we are looking to our communities to step forward and help us ensure that each person’s visit for their vaccination is provided with care and compassion.
We believe the key to the success of the roll out plan is the contact with each individual arriving and leaving the vaccination hub. Our GP teams and volunteers from other statutory services will be working extremely hard to support as many people to receive a vaccination safely. This will enable them to begin the route back to freedom and connection to family, friends and their local community, helping reduce loneliness and isolation.
Given the absolute priority to roll out the vaccination programme as quickly and effectively as possible, we are making this call to the Voluntary sector and its amazing volunteers to play a part in making people feel welcomed with compassion, and supported through the experience.
This request is for volunteers to work with our GP surgeries to provide the best experience for our most vulnerable residents attending a vaccination. Alongside a wide range of medical professionals, volunteers will play a vital role in the following:
