How you can become a Covid-19 vaccinator in London and how much it pays – My London
At the same time coronavirus cases across London continue to reach overwhelming numbers, the vaccine roll out is also picking up speed.
So far over two million people in the UK have received the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine, but many more injections are needed to reach the government’s target of 15 million people vaccinated by mid-February.
To meet this target the government has opened vaccination centres across the UK, with football stadiums such as Crystal Palace’s Selhurt Park even being used as a venue.
With the new centres, however, much more staff are needed and NHS are recruiting for vaccinators to be a “part of history”.
