Vaccinations for Newcastle’s frontline health and staff and volunteers now available - pre register today
Since the first Covid-19 vaccines were given approval for use by the Joint Committee for Vaccinations and Immunisations (JCVI), Collaborative Newcastle partners have been working together to coordinate and deliver vaccinations to the priority groups identified by the JCVI. The JCVI advises that the first priorities for COVID-19 vaccinations should be the prevention of mortality and the maintenance of the health and social care systems.
In line with the JCVI prioritisation, vaccinations for frontline health and social care workers in Voluntary and Community organisations in Newcastle are now available. Frontline health and social care workers have been identified as a priority group as they are at increased personal risk of exposure to infection with Covid-19 and of transmitting that infection to susceptible and vulnerable people in health and social care settings.
If you are a Voluntary and Community Organisation working in Newcastle, you will be re required to pre-register your organisation using the online form below. As part of pre-registering, you will be asked to confirm how many frontline health and social care staff and/or volunteers your organisation has working within the boundary of Newcastle upon Tyne. A member of the team will then contact you with booking information for you to share with your frontline workers so they can book their vaccination on days and at venues allocated for the vaccination of frontline workers. This will also include Frequently Asked Questions about the vaccine that can be shared with your frontline workers. Important - please note this offer is for frontline health and social care only. Any staff/volunteers who do not fit the criteria cannot be offered a vaccine.
Please only complete one form per organisation. Where organisations operate across multiple Local Authority areas, please ensure the form you submit relates to service delivery in Newcastle only.
