Volunteer for the Medical Reserve Corps
SCPHS uses MRC volunteers, medical and non-medical, to help with the County’s vaccine efforts. As eligibility has increased for primary and booster shots, more volunteers are needed. People interested in signing up for the MRC can visit https://apps.health.ny.gov/pub/servny/.
