The NHS have recruited easyJet staff to help administer the vaccines as their staff have “an ideal skill set” to help at centres across the UK.

The airline expect hundreds of their staff to become trained vaccinators, as many easyJet staff are on furlough.

EasyJet chief executive Johan Lundgren said: “We are delighted to be assisting the NHS in their efforts to protect the nation’s health and help to roll out this crucial vaccination programme.

“We are incredibly proud that once again our pilots and crew can help to support the NHS and that we can play our part for the nation at this time – and I know so many of them will step up to help at this challenging time for the country.

“The progress the country is making on the vaccination programme is an exciting and much-needed development.

“Once rolled out, it will enable normal life to return and is undoubtedly the key to unlocking travel again and enabling travel for work, to visit friends and family or for a much-needed holiday.”

“We are pleased and proud to be able to play our part and stand by ready to support wherever else we can.”

Chief executive Elliot Howard-Jones of Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust said, “We are all looking forward to welcoming some of the first easyJet crew for further training to become highly-valued members of our trust’s immunisation team.

“Their first aid and caring skills will make them ideally suited to help deliver the huge task we currently face.”
