Volunteering at Vaccine Clinics
The Yolo County Health and Human Services Agency is looking for volunteers to assist with upcoming and future vaccination clinics. Volunteers will assist with set up, take down, registration, screening, vaccination, traffic control, translation, medical observation and overall management of the vaccination clinics. Anyone sixteen years of age and older can volunteer and Community Service Certificates will be issued for all volunteers. Food and drinks will also be provided during volunteer shifts. Volunteers are recommended to complete the “Medical Points of Dispensing (MPOD)” course at http://yolopodclasses.org. Upon completion of the class, individuals will be given the option to submit a volunteer application to Yolo County. For questions about volunteering, contact the Yolo County volunteer coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org.
