Thurston County Public Health and Social Services (TCPHSS) is the lead agency for vaccination clinics in our community. For the most up-to-date information, including finding vaccination appointments and determining eligibility, please visit their website: https://www.thurstoncountywa.gov/phss/Coronavirus/Pages/coronavirus-vaccine-info.aspx.
Where can people sign up to volunteer for future vaccination clinics?
People who are interested in volunteering for future vaccination clinics can sign up to be notified of opportunities on United Way of Thurston County’s website: https://www.unitedway-thurston.org/covid19.
Who can volunteer at vaccination clinics?
Due to the nature of the clinics, including working with patients some of whom may be minors, all volunteers must receive a background check, complete our Volunteer Waiver, and acknowledge that they have read the Volunteer Code of Conduct, Ethics, and Tips. Additionally, as a contracted partner with TCPHSS, the Vaccine Volunteer Program is subject to the vaccination requirement outlined in Governor Inslee's Proclamation 21-14. Therefore, volunteers must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19.
What should I bring to my volunteer shift?
If you have not yet submitted proof of full vaccination against COVID-19, please bring this documentation and an ID. For safety purposes, long pants and close-toed shoes are required. While refreshments are provided, we recommend bringing extra snacks and water for longer shifts.
Who is my point of contact for vaccination clinics?
