An urgent call has gone out for people to offer support as steward volunteers at vaccination sites across East Suffolk.
NHS Volunteer Responders are calling for more steward volunteers in Lowestoft amid a growing need in the East of England.
With the NHS calling for help to get local people vaccinated over the summer, particularly in those areas of most vaccination need, steward volunteers are particularly needed to support the efficient and safe movement of patients through the vaccination site at the Old Law Courts in Old Nelson Street, Lowestoft.
Catherine Johnstone, chief executive of Royal Voluntary Service, said: “There is a particular need for steward volunteers to help the vaccination programme reach communities most in need.
"If you are able to help by joining the team, please don’t hesitate.

"Together we can get the jabs done.”
People interested are being asked to go to www.nhsvolunteerresponders.org.uk to sign up as a Steward Volunteer.
Shifts usually last up to six hours with expenses covered.
