CORONAVIRUS vaccines will be available to people in Worcestershire “imminently” according to NHS officials, and staff are being recruited to administer the jab.

The NHS is recruiting experienced ‘vaccinators’ like school nurses, midwives, dentists and GPs to help with the mass delivery of vaccinations in Bromsgrove and Worcester.

The vaccinators will be needed as soon as December 14 according to a job posting on the NHS website.

The posting says the pandemic immunisers will work as part of 'a dynamic team in delivering a safe and effective service for the mass delivery of the Covid-19 vaccine' in two locations, Bromsgrove or Worcester.

The operation will be running from 8am to 5pm, seven days a week, but will be closed on Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day

The vaccinators will be responsible for administering the vaccine to people within a team of staff working in a pod structure.

The job post says they are looking for professionals in the following categories to apply:

Any experienced vaccinators including: practice nurses, school nurses, donor nurses, midwives, occupational health providers, community pharmacists, dentists, GP returners, paramedics, nursing associates

A church in Worcester has been earmarked as a mass coronavirus vaccination centre. Documents seen by the Worcester News say St Peter’s Church in Eden Close would be ready for use as a vaccination centre by November 30.

The church is one of two Worcestershire venues designated under the plans, with the former Artrix Theatre in Bromsgrove the other.

Yesterday it emerged that people with a history of significant allergic reactions should not have the Pfizer/BioNTech Covid jab, after two NHS workers had allergic reactions on Tuesday.
