COVID-19 Vaccine Clinic Volunteers

PLEASE NOTE: Thanks to the generosity of residents and community partners we have met our volunteer needs and are not recruiting volunteers at this time.   

 

Volunteers play an important role in responding to the COVID-19 pandemic by supporting vaccination clinics. Volunteers provide support in non-clinical roles and help make sure clients of all ages have an excellent experience at our vaccine clinics. 

Some of the positive contributions made by volunteers and staff in our clinics are captured in this short video.
