Flu 2020 – Meet the vaccinators

Richard Holt

As you will all be aware by now, we have launched our Flu Vaccination 2020 campaign, which you can read more about on our Flu homepage.

The campaign would not be possible without Trust staff assuming the role of vaccinator to their colleagues, a role that is particularly important this year more than ever.

Today we would like to introduce you to two of your vaccinator colleagues, who if you see them around, be sure to say hello!


Richard Holt

What is your role in the Trust?  I am an Advanced Paramedic.

Where are you based?  I am based out of Loughton Station.

How long have you been in the Trust?  17 years.

Why have you become a flu vaccinator?  For the ‘Quality Streets’… seriously it's nice to give something to the staff that will hopefully keep protect them and their families over the winter months.

One message to your colleagues on why it is important to get the jab? Its always worth remembering flu kills 11 thousand people a year in this Country and you could be very easily taking it home to your family or vulnerable patients.

Interesting fact about yourself?  I have completed the London Marathon 7 times.



Edward Watt

Edward Watt

What is your role in the Trust? I am a HART Team Leader.

Where are you based? Melbourn, Cambridgeshire.

How long have you been in the Trust? I joined in 2007.

Why have you become a flu vaccinator? To provide support to my colleague.

One message to your colleagues on why it is important to get the jab? We can all play a small part in protecting our families and colleagues against Flu. Flu is bad enough to get on its own, let alone couple with COVID-19.

Interesting fact about yourself? Outside of work I am a Scout Leader and member of St John Ambulance.


Don’t forget to pay a visit to Richard, Edward or one of their fellow vaccinators at one of our flu clinics, which you can find out about here.
