Vaccination Site Volunteers

WMCHealth is managing several New York State COVID-19 vaccination sites in Westchester, Rockland, Orange, and Ulster Counties. (Once volunteers are screened, they will be able to select their preferred shifts and locations.) Volunteers are needed to assist guests after they have been screened and checked in at the registration desk in the main lobby, as well as to help guests book their second dose appointments while they are receiving their vaccinations.

This is a call for new volunteers who have not already registered for this program. If you have already completed these steps, please consult the invitation-only email we sent to you when you passed your orientation, background check, and HIPAA requirements.

To join this historic effort to help stop the spread of COVID-19, please read the following information carefully.

  • Volunteer Scribes:
    • Help schedule guests for their second appointments alongside the clinicians in the vaccination room
