Volunteers are needed for both medical and non-medical positions, but volunteers are asked to not sign up for medical positions unless they have received training in administering shots.
"This shot is truly what’s going to keep us healthy in the months and years to come, and to consider if we all want to get back out and about in a safe way this is the fastest way to do it, and this is the easiest way to do it," said director of communications Jen Stratton.
Family Hospital Systems says that all volunteers will receive COVID-19 vaccines.
Sign-up opportunities are updated each Saturday at 5 p.m. for the following week. Family Hospital Systems says that locations and need may change and volunteers will receive an email with information the night before their scheduled shift.
Volunteers are currently being sought for the Kelly Reeves Athletic Stadium vaccination location this Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday. There are two shifts: the first from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the second from 2 p.m. to 8 p.m.
"We’re looking for folks who are able to take notes and write down important critical information such as dates of birth and full names to make sure that we’re getting appropriate paperwork complete for the state and federal authorities," said Stratton. "We’re also looking for doctors and nurses who might be willing to take some time on their day off to come out and help administer shots. We are fully able to train up here and answer any questions that people might have and we do have full-time FHS staff who are staffing this particular hub all of the time."
