Volunteering

Community members who would like to support our team members by volunteering their time can do so during community COVID-19 vaccination clinic and/or vaccine distribution efforts. Volunteer services are needed in the call center and scheduling department, non-clinical event support, and clinical support. Those interested in assisting can complete the volunteer form and will be contacted about upcoming opportunities.

All volunteers must be 18 years of age or older. Volunteers may be subject to a background check and will be required to complete additional documentation and training prior to volunteering.

There is some flexibility in terms of volunteer shift times. However, we ask that volunteers can commit to a minimum of a three hour shift (four to six hour shifts preferred). Non-clinical volunteers may be asked to check people in, screen people as they arrive, assist with signing consents, provide way finding, or observe post-vaccination. Clinical volunteers may be asked to administer the vaccination, scribe, or observe people post vaccination.
