Volunteers help COVID-19 vaccine events run smooth and safely. Here’s how you can help!

This week is National Volunteer Week, a fantastic opportunity to thank the many volunteers who make up the Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps.

These volunteers represent the best of who we are in Pierce County. Because of their volunteer support, Tacoma-Pierce County Health Department is meeting the challenge of COVID-19.

Since our COVID-19 response began a little over a year ago, more than 2,200 volunteers have stepped up to join the Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps. But we still need more people to lend a hand!

We need  clinical volunteers who can help administer COVID-19 vaccine.

Not in the medical field? No worries. You can still join us as  a non-clinical volunteer.

Non-clinical volunteers help support our efforts in a variety of different roles, and  are essential to the success of our vaccination events.

They are the friendly faces who support our registration team, prepare paperwork for clients and vaccination staff and  support overall event flow, like helping people find their way around, and ensuring proper physical distancing.

Volunteers help vaccine events run safely and smoothly.

Some volunteers lend a hand on their days off from work, and others are retired. As different as these volunteers may be, they all come together with a shared purpose to help us overcome COVID-19 and get back to more of what we love. If you want to make a difference in communities across Pierce County, consider volunteering for COVID-19 vaccine events. Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps accepts clinical and non-clinical volunteers 18 years and older.

You decide which events you attend and how much time you commit.  Pierce County Medical Reserve Corps adapts to each volunteer’s availability.

Volunteer opportunities include large public COVID-19 vaccine events and small community COVID-19 vaccine events.

We currently have a great need for volunteers to help at events Monday through Friday.

To volunteer or for more information, contact us at (253)649-1415 or mrc@tpchd.org. You can also visit piercecountymrc.org.

Together, we will put this pandemic behind us.
