The National Health Service has so far recruited over 13,000 newly trained vaccinators from NHS Professionals who are either starting their local on-boarding or will shortly be invited to do so and over 19,516 volunteer vaccinators from St John Ambulance. These are in addition to the 71,400 full-time equivalent existing NHS staff supporting the COVID-19 vaccination programme. The number of newly recruited vaccinators increases on a weekly basis.
