Call to Arms – resourcing the Covid-19 vaccinations 

Call to Arms is the name of our campaign to recruit people to help with the Covid-19 vaccination programme in Derby and Derbyshire and the establishment of the Derbyshire Health and Care People Hub.

Call to Arms called for expressions of interest from registered health and care professionals and the general public to help support the vaccination programme. This included a paid and voluntary workforce that is delivering at primary care network sites and our mass vaccination site in Derby. 

Our thanks go to everyone who responded and helped during the pandemic. In April 2021 our mass vaccination site in Derby administered their 100,000th vaccine.

We are encouraging registered health care professionals to contact us to help support the Covid-19 vaccination programme. You may be looking for additional hours or a professional seeking to return to practice.

Registered health care professionals are responsible for vaccination drawing-up and patient clinical assessment prior to the vaccination, as well as, subject to the precise role, delivery of the vaccination itself.

If you are able to start working in this role, please contact

The roles in the Covid-19 vaccination programme are primarily based at our mass vaccination site at Midland House which operates a seven-day vaccination service.

We also support the local vaccination sites and their opening hours are stipulated by vaccine clinic schedules (not seven-days a week like the mass vaccination site).
