By the first lockdown I think everyone felt pretty down, uninspired and uncertain. I was getting pretty bored of just staring at a screen all day and wanted something to do so when I heard volunteers were needed to help out in the vaccine centre. I started volunteering in August, On my first shift it felt like I was entering another world talking and being around loads of people and seeing the vaccinations take place seemed pretty surreal. I helped guide people around the centre, talked to people and made sure they were okay and assisted the staff. I came away from it feeling more fulfilled than I have in a long time. I then started volunteering in a bigger site which had an amazing community of volunteers and the atmosphere was so welcoming and positive. At this site there were lots of volunteers and we went through different Covid checks when people arrived and helped with registration. Volunteering definitely helped me get through the last term and it kept me optimistic in getting life back to normal. The staffs there were all amazing and I felt very fortunate to be able to work alongside them. I feel very privileged to be able to give people the vaccine but, like all Covid-19 related things, it has become pretty normal. Everyone wanted to care for those who come through the door and get as many vaccinated as possible. This experience has been one of the most rewarding things, I would encourage everyone to volunteer at the vaccine centres if they are interested and get the vaccine when it becomes available to you.
