St. Louis County seeks volunteers to assist at COVID-19 vaccination clinics

In preparation for when the COVID vaccine is more widely available for larger categories of people, St. Louis County Public Health is seeking volunteers to assist at vaccination clinics. The County is looking for both Minnesota Board-certified nurses to assist with administering vaccinations, as well as other volunteers for roles ranging from helping with registration to traffic control. Basic computer skills are requested. 


St. Louis County is using the Minnesota Responds system to register volunteers. To sign up, visit The Minnesota Responds Medical Reserve Corps (MN Responds MRC) is part of a nationwide initiative to pre-register, manage, and mobilize volunteers to help their communities respond to all types of disasters. 


"St. Louis County Public Health staff has done an amazing job so far with getting shots into people’s arms during these first initial weeks of vaccine roll-out," said Amy Westbrook, St. Louis County Public Health Division Director. "But we will soon be moving to phases with larger priority groups and so we are seeking volunteers to assist us at larger clinic events." 


Anyone who wants to help is encouraged to sign up regardless of whether they have medical training or experience. Registering with Minnesota Responds does not obligate an individual to assist at any particular location or date but puts them on a list to be contacted so that they can choose to help when it works with their schedule.
