Find your role

Register. Receive world-class training. Be empowered to help vaccinate the nation.

Between now and spring 2021, we have plans to train more than 30,000 volunteers. Using our longstanding expertise, we will empower people like you with lifesaving clinical skills and the confidence to use them every day.

There are two roles specific to the vaccination programme: 

Some people, specifically the volunteer vaccinators, will be able to give vaccinations, but others are there to support people as they go through the process of receiving a vaccination.

All roles are available in a variety of locations nationwide with a minimum time commitment of 2 shifts of up to 8 hours each (16 hours in total a month).

St John Ambulance only operates in England. For information about our sister organisations in Scotland, Wales, and Ireland visit our main website.

Our registration system will help you find out which of the roles you can apply for. See an overview of the roles below.
