Who’s ready to see this pandemic come to an end?

If you enthusiastically raised your hand just now, and you’d like to put your money where your mouth is (as they say), the Arkansas Department of Health would like to put you to work.

The ADH on Thursday issued a call for volunteers on Thursday to help with COVID-19 related items, including helping on vaccination efforts once more supply of the vaccine is available in the state.

From the ADH website:

The Arkansas Department of Health is recruiting volunteers who can help with statewide emergency response activities. Our immediate need is for the COVID-19 response, to include current and future vaccination efforts. If you have a background as a health care provider or nurse, your experience can be matched with a relevant volunteer opportunity. Volunteers are also needed in non-medical roles, so please consider volunteering regardless of your previous experience.

The ADH is seeking volunteers in their System of Emergency Response Volunteers (SERV) and Medical Reserve Corps (MRC)-Arkansas programs.

More information, including links to sign up to volunteer for the programs, is available here.
