Vaccination Clinic Volunteer

We are looking for a volunteer to help ensure the smooth running of our COVID client vaccination clinic.

Sacred Heart Mission is coordinating a COVID client vaccination program with the support of STAR Health. The program has led to almost 500 vaccinations provided to our clients by mid December 2021.

We are looking for a volunteer with a background in health (for example nursing), health promotion or community development to help ensure the smooth running of our clinic.

About Sacred Heart Mission

Sacred Heart Mission is a local Melbourne charity focused on elevating disadvantage, social exclusion, trauma and homelessness.
Volunteering with us is a wonderful and engaging experience that directly supports these goals and values.

Location

Sacred Heart Mission Engagement Hub, 87 Grey Street, St Kilda

The vaccination clinic is held in an outdoor marquee in the courtyard of our Engagement Hub.

Responsibilities

  • Support the Star Health vaccination team which comprises a GP, a vaccination nurse, registration clerk and safety officer.
  • Welcome clients and help them feel comfortable.
  • Work closely with Sacred Heart Mission Pathways Workers to engage clients and have conversations about COVID vaccination.
