What are Lead Staff?

Definition:

Lead Staff


Are staff members who oversee general POD staff. Each Lead staff member supervises a team and reports to a Command Staff member. Each team fulfills a specific function at the POD.

  • Screening Lead
  • Runner Lead
  • Dispensing/Vaccination Lead

  • Example: A Dispensing/Vaccination Lead duties include:

    1. Make sure supplies at the Vaccination stations do not run out
    2. Rotate staff so that those who need breaks are sure to get them
    3. Present any questions/concerns they cannot handle to a Command Staff member
