Simon Cowell joins the government appeal for volunteers to help at the Covid vaccination centres
Simon Cowell is one of a host of celebrities who have joined forces with The Sun Newspaper and government to recruit 50,000 volunteers to help marshal at the vaccination centres around the country.
Simon said: "The vaccine offers new hope for all of us for 2021 — and so anything that can support the roll-out plans must have all of our support and thankfulness.”
VOLUNTEERS for the Jabs Army are being asked to first register online at nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk.
You will then receive an email with log-in details to sign up online.
Finally, you will be asked to download the GoodSAM app on a smartphone which will match you to a role in your area.
Services will be opening in the coming days and weeks, with different areas up and running at different times, so you might not be required on site for some weeks. Not everyone who signs up will need to be called upon.
You need to commit to only two six-hour shifts a month at a vaccination service, and no prior experience or qualifications are required.
You will work as part of a team that will include NHS staff and volunteers.
