Greene County Public Health is looking for volunteers for its Medical Reserve Corps to help with mass vaccination clinics.
Director Becky Wolf says plans are being developed for when the time comes for a mass COVID-19 vaccination clinic and they need help with different volunteer positions. The positions include medical, public and mental health professionals, volunteer coordinators, clerical support, security, transportation and child care.
Wolf points out the benefits of serving in the Medical Reserve Corps allows you to choose the level of participation, serving family, friends and neighbors; part of a team that is trained to provide public and mental health support for emergencies, conducting initiatives that enhance and strengthen public health and free training is also offered. Wolf appreciates everyone’s patience as they continue to work through the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We truly appreciate everyone’s support and help and we know it’s a difficult time. It’s very, very stressful for people when they’re very anxious to get this vaccine in. I just want to reinforce, you still have control over how you can protect yourself until you are able to get a vaccine.”
Anyone wanting to learn more information about the Medical Reserve Corps can contact public health at 515-386-3228.
