Be a Covid-19 Vaccine Clinic Volunteer

It’s time to mobilize an army of volunteers to help our community beat COVID-19. In collaboration with the Ontario Health Team Northumberland and the HKPR Health Unit, the Rotary Club of Cobourg is leading a community collaboration to recruit volunteers to assist at the Covid-19 Vaccine Clinic opening on Tuesday, March 16th at the Cobourg Community Centre.

We need volunteers in three areas:

  1. Assisting at the Clinics — two shifts 8 to Noon – Noon to 5 (Download and Complete Form)
  2. Making Telephone Calls — calling volunteers to remind them of shifts (Download and Complete Form)
  3. Drivers of Elderly to CCC Vaccine Clinic Site — this is being overseen by Community Care Northumberland (Please call – 705 653-7476)

Attached is a brief description of the possible roles and responsibilities. Assignments will be made at the beginning of each volunteer shift. We will need to schedule 50-60 volunteers per day to support the clinics.

  • Four Lobby Greeters to verify COVID screen, washroom

  • Four Pod Line Controllers to ensure distancing in the lineup, handoff to escort
