Directional Escort for Covid 19 Vaccine Clinics

Save to Favorites

Orlando VA Medical Center

  • A group opportunity. Invite your friends.
  • 11 people are interested

The Orlando VA Medical Center is one of three VA's in the country that has been selected as a site to administer a new COVID19 vaccine to Veterans age 85 years old and up. The target date to begin the vaccination of the most vulnerable population of our Veterans is November 15th but this is not set in stone.

The volunteers will be providing instructions to the Veterans as they enter the building and keeping them going in the correct path as they make their way to the site where the vaccine will be administered. Some volunteers may also be providing wheel chair escorts to some Veterans needing mobility assistance to the site.

A few volunteers by the vaccination stations will also provide directions to the post vaccine waiting and check out areas.

This assignment is a long running assignment and we will need many volunteers as we continue to vaccinate and move up in the various age brackets of Veterans receiving the vaccine.

Will be provided face mask, social distancing, etc.

Mission Statement

Orlando VA Voluntary Service is committed to the development of volunteer programs in support of quality, Veteran focused care through the recruitment of volunteers, utilization of community resources, and active involvement and engagement of community stakeholders, with our Veterans. On March 3, 1865, a month before the Civil War ended, President Abraham Lincoln authorized the first-ever national soldiers’ and sailors’ asylum to provide medical and convalescent care for discharged members of the Union Army and Navy volunteer forces. The asylum was the first of its kind in the world to provide civilian medical care to Veterans of temporary volunteer forces. This is where the VA originated from.

Description

Today’s Veterans Health Administration (VHA) originated during the Civil War as the first federal hospitals and Domiciliaries ever established for the nation’s volunteer military forces.

Our goal is to ensure that the volunteer experience at the OVAMC is as rewarding to the volunteer as it is beneficial to the patients, families, visitors, and caregivers.

Our Volunteers provide important functions throughout the OVAMC to help make our patients’ visits a more enjoyable one. Through the on-boarding process each volunteer’s talents and skills are closely matched with one of our wide variety of assignments. To learn more about this process and how you can begin to serve our nation’s Veterans at the OVAMC
