COVID-19 Vaccine Taskforce

The WRMRC is looking for volunteers to join their COVID-19 Taskforce in preparation for the potential vaccine being available in the coming months. No medical experience is required. We are looking for volunteers who have excellent organizational skills, customer skills, and are detail orientated to fill support roles in the potential COVID-19 vaccine clinics. All volunteers would receive Just-in-Time training before working at vaccine site. The time commitment we are looking for is 4-6 hour shift, including set-up and take down. If you are interested, you must sign-up with MA Responds and complete a background check. The roles we would be looking to fill are listed below:
• Registration
• Greeters
• Float staff
• Form collection
• Promoting social distancing & proper mask wearing
• Disinfecting
• Behavioral health staff
• Medical staff (must be a licensed medical professional who can give vaccinations)

The Worcester Regional Medical Reserve Corp (WRMRC) is part of a national network of volunteers who help make their communities stronger and healthier during disasters and every day. The WRMRC works to improve local emergency response capabilities, reduce potential public health risks and vulnerabilities, and build community preparedness and resilience. The unit prepares for and responds to natural disasters, such as wildfires, hurricanes, blizzards, and floods. Volunteers also regularly contribute to community preparedness- engaging in CPR/AED training and assisting with community vaccination clinics.

The WRMRC volunteers include medical and non-medical professionals who wish to donate their time and expertise. The specific role that you will play, and the activities in which you will participate, will depend upon your background, interests, and skills, as well as the needs of the unit and the community.
