                                                       Healthcare Students Vaccinator Roles

 

Do something incredible today & Play your Part in the COVID-19 Vaccination Programme

The COVID-19 Vaccination Programme is now moving to a very important stage with the continued rollout of the vaccine across the Mid-West of Ireland. UL Hospitals Group has been leading the way in the rollout of the vaccine in the Mid-West and over the course of the last number of months we have recruited a significant number of vaccinators to support this initiative.

We have successfully opened Vaccination Centres in Limerick, Ennis and Nenagh. Vaccines are the best defence against the virus used alongside effective social distancing, wearing a mask and washing your hands.

We are now seeking healthcare students to join the wider rollout of the vaccine to all citizens. We are looking to hear from students who wish to play their part and join the COVID-19 Vaccination Team.

Student as Vaccinator roles and responsibilities:

You will work as part of a dynamic team in delivering a safe and effective service for the mass delivery of the COVID-19 vaccine(s). The term vaccinator encompasses the following three roles in a COVID-19 Vaccination Centre: Wellness Checker, Vaccinator and Observer.

We are asking healthcare students to register their interest for either full time, part time, or flexible hours. We would be grateful for any time contributions that healthcare students can offer and in return we will offer flexible hours/days to suit staff members’ own commitments and lifestyle.
