Latimer said: “As more and more people continue to get vaccinated and boosted, we want to make it easier for them to navigate through the process with trained volunteers. Westchester County has always had a strong commitment to volunteerism. We know their purpose and presence will be embraced, and we thank them for stepping up to help keep our community safe.”

Volunteer New York! is seeking eligible volunteers ages 18 and over who are willing to work in three to four hour shifts. Volunteers will be assisting with day to day operation of the vaccine clinic from aiding with traffic flow, check-in, appointment making, paperwork and taking temperatures of incoming guests. Bilingual volunteers are also being sought to help facilitate the needs of non-native English language speakers. 

Executive Director of Volunteer New York! Jeanette Gisbert said: "COVID-19 vaccine accessibility is vital to the health and resiliency of our community and this partnership is a reminder of the critical support volunteers provide during times of need. We're proud to be able to support Westchester County and their leadership efforts." 

The County is partnering with Volunteer New York until April 24 and will be providing all recruits with personal protection equipment (PPE). All volunteers must be vaccinated and will be required to show proof of vaccination.
