Bilingual Support Needed
County vaccination clinics are focused on reaching communities most impacted by COVID-19. The County Health Department wants to make sure vaccination clinics are as welcoming and safe as possible for our communities who often experience barriers to services.
We are seeking volunteers who are FULLY FLUENT in a language other than English. All bilingual volunteers will be phone screened to confirm their level of language fluency.
If you are qualified and interested, please submit this Bilingual/Bicultural/Community volunteer interest form. You may also share this link with anyone you know who can assist with this critical need even if they are not already an EOC Volunteer.
If you have any questions, please reach out to email@example.com. Please include "Bilingual Volunteer" in the subject line.
