COVID Vaccine Response


Welcome to the UTHSC COVID-19 Vaccine Response group. Please answer the membership application questions to access volunteer opportunities. All available opportunities are listed under "Events" on the group page. Read the event descriptions carefully to determine which positions require licensed/certified medical personnel and which positions are open to volunteers who are not licensed healthcare providers. If you are uncertain as to which shifts you may register for, please contact the event administrator.

Please be advised that any volunteers who wish to receive the COVID-19 vaccine must make an appointment. You can visit for more information and a link for scheduling. Volunteers will not automatically receive a vaccine at the end of their shift.
