5. Medical Reserve Corps

This morning WHIO reported that the Montgomery County Health Department was seeking volunteers to assist at their Covid-19 vaccination clinic. While medical professionals are obviously needed to give the shots, non-medical volunteers can help in other ways.

For the past ten months I‘ve worked for the Clark County Combined Health District, driving active Covid-19 patients home from Springfield Regional Medical Center. This week I added driving CCCHD clients from home to the clinic for shots and back. I‘ve even learned such new skills as driving busses and operating wheelchair lifts!

So if you are bored, consider contacting your local health department about volunteering with their Medical Reserve Corps.
