The Medical Reserve Corps units of the Thomas Jefferson, Central Shenandoah and Lord Fairfax health districts are looking for currently licensed Registered Nurses, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Pharmacists to become part of our Vaccine Dispensing Strike Team.
Each year throughout flu season, volunteers will participate in training and exercises to dispense flu vaccine to the public. In 2009, MRC units across the country supported public health efforts to protect their communities from the spread of H1N1. You can be a part of the effort to maintain readiness while fighting seasonal influenza.
CDC estimates that influenza has resulted in between 9.3 million - 49.0 million illnesses, between 140,000 - 960,000 hospitalizations and between 12,000 - 79,000 deaths annually since 2010 (https://www.cdc.gov/flu/about/burden/index.html).
Join the MRC today, complete required training, and work alongside the health department to keep your community safe!
We'll work with your schedule.
