What we are looking for:
Norwalk Community Health Center is on the frontlines in preventing COVID19.  We are looking for COVID19 vaccination clinic 'observer' and meet and greet volunteers to keep these two outreach events run smoothly.   At our flagship locaton at 120 CT Avenue in Norwalk (Across from the Norwalk Fire Department) we're vaccinating on Tuesdays and Thursdays. And, on a more variable schedule,our Medical Mobile Unit goes into neighborhoods to provide access to COVID19 vaccinations in underserved neighborhoods or at the invitation of our community partners (such as Norwalk Public Schools, the Department of Health, the Consulate General of Mexico in New York, local churches etc,) and community fairs. Observers keep an eye on clinic participants for 15 or 30 minutes immediately after they've received their dose.Should anyone have an adverse reaction, observers alert vaccination team for immediate follow up by a member of our medical staff.  Meet and greet volunteers welcome people and direct them to the appropriate line or area for registration, vaccination and post-vaccination observation, provide information on available health care services and community resources. Email us at volunteers@norwalkchc.org if you're available and interested so that we can get your information, send you a volunteer application to complete, and get you on the schedule for one of on-site or special clinics.  
You either own this opportunity, already applied for this opportunity, or are not registered as a volunteer!
