As the state continues to expand more opportunities for COVID-19 vaccine distribution, clinics are seeking volunteers to assist at those sites. New Milford Mayor Pete Bass says the need for volunteers to help with the process is rising as the State opened up appointments to residents 65 and older. For those Seniors that have already filled out a pre-application form, those names are already being entered into the system.
New Milford is looking for help from the public to staff vaccination clinics to expedite the process. They are needed for non-clinical tasks such as validating appointment and ID, providing follow up vaccination cards, making sure patients wait about 15 minutes before leaving, and parking lot guides.
Residents interested in volunteering should contact the Vaccination Volunteer Hotline @ 860-355-6059 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Volunteers should be in good overall health, have transportation, experience with using a computer to enter data and have flexibility in scheduling.
