Band 5 Immunisation Nurse – COVID 19 Vaccination Programme

Sanctuary has an exciting opportunity for you. As a Band 5 COVID 19 Vaccination Programme nurse, here’s your opportunity to help protect thousands of people in St Helens against coronavirus and relieve the pressure on the NHS.

Your experience of supervising immunisations will be invaluable in what is an incredible national effort to drive down infection rates. You will effectively be making history.

As a Band 5 Immunisation Nurse, you will be working alongside other caring and compassionate professionals we place who have the right values to care for those being vaccinated.

You will have highly developed specialist knowledge of general nursing and have recent experience of administering vaccines.

As such, you will be able to undertake the following activities: clinical assessment, dilution and drawing up of the vaccine from multi-dose vials and post vaccine observations support.

As a Band 5 Immunisation Nurse, you will be responsible for:

  • The configuration of the vaccination pod and vaccination station.

  • Conducting clinical assessments.

  • The review of complex medical histories and potential adverse reactions.

  • Preparation of the vaccine prior to administration by the immunisers.

  • Ensuring the best possible clinical outcomes by using up-to-date skills and adhering to evidence-based policies and procedures.

Requirements as an Immunisation Nurse:

  • Degree or equivalent in general nursing

  • Active NMC Registration as a registered general nurse

  • Recent UK Nursing experience

  • Recent experience within Immunisations

  • Anaphylaxis training

The vaccination PODs will be open from 8am until 8pm seven days a week and so you will be expected to work 12 hour shifts of 07:45am – 20:15pm. Payments for these will be in alignment with the NHS England and NHS Improvement cap.
