Unfortunately vaccinating volunteers or employees prior to the start of assignment is not possible. The vaccine doses would not be fully effective until one to two weeks after the second dose, and we currently do not have an abundance of vaccine available to do so.
Volunteers must complete 12 hours to qualify as a Volunteer First Responder. We are fortunate to have a large number of volunteers on a weekly basis; however, that makes it difficult to prioritize differently. We hope you understand and join us in our main goal of vaccinating the entire population, and volunteers is the only way that goal is possible. We appreciate each of you!
