Breaking News ! Airline easyJet has confirmed that cabin crew based across the UK will now be trained to give coronavirus vaccines. Furloughed staff at the operator are being recruited by the NHS to provide innoculation services during the rollout of the jab. Cabin crew that are not working but are first-aid trained and security checked can sign up to the scheme where they will be fast-tracked to become trained vaccinators. The airline said: “As easyJet continues to operate a reduced schedule as a result of the pandemic, our furloughed crew has an ideal skill set to be able to assist in the effort to provide much-needed inoculation support to the NHS in rolling out the Covid-19 vaccine. “Crew who apply will be fast-tracked to become trained vaccinators at NHS vaccination centres across the country and will undergo online training and onsite immunisation training to become fully qualified in administering the vaccine.” Read More Related Articles Survey: Do you think we need tougher lockdown restrictions and rules?

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.

.” It comes after the company's chief executive wrote to Boris Johnson in November offering to support the Government on its efforts to implement the national Covid-19 vaccination programme this winter. One of the first NHS trusts in England to enlist the support of fast-tracked easyJet crew is Hertfordshire Community NHS Trust. Chief Executive Elliot Howard-Jones said: “We are all looking forward to welcoming some of 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, to give those most at risk protection against the COVID-19 virus.” “On behalf of all the Trust and our patients we truly appreciate their support and look forward to beating this pandemic together.” Last year the airline worked with the NHS on recruiting its first aid trained cabin crew volunteers to directly support clinical services in NHS Nightingale hospitals and airline staff to volunteer as NHS responders. easyJet cabin crew and pilots have also been volunteering to support the NHS through Project Wingman to provide wellbeing support to frontline clinical staff battling the coronavirus pandemic in 85 hospitals across the country. The project’s co-founder, recent easyJet Captain Emma Henderson, has been awarded an MBE for her leadership of the charity.
