Help us help Minnesota.
M Health Fairview is seeking volunteers to help with our COVID-19 vaccination effort. Priority is given to those who can contribute 40 hours of volunteer service over several months. Eligible volunteers may be asked to assist with registration and documentation at our vaccination sites, serve as an observer, or – if you meet medical criteria – give out the vaccine.
In order to help, you must:
- Complete a volunteer application
- Undergo a health screening and a background check
- Participate in role-specific training
If possible, we ask that volunteers commit to at least 40 hours of work at a vaccination site of their choice, though shorter commitments are welcome. Four- and eight-hour shifts are available. Volunteers are eligible to receive the vaccine if they have not had COVID-19, based on vaccine availability during their shift.
Surgical masks and face shields will be provided at each site and must be worn by all volunteers at all times. Gloves are provided on an as needed basis. Volunteers must adhere to social distancing guidelines.
To apply, please complete our secure registration form. Once we have received your information, one of our volunteer coordinators may reach out to you.
