A volunteer for the vaccine chart abstraction project would primarily be responsible for two key tasks:

1. Patient Lookup in the CAIR System: The volunteer would first look up the patient in the California Immunization Registry (CAIR) system. This system contains previous immunization records of the patient, providing a comprehensive view of their vaccination history.

2. Data Entry into EHR System: After retrieving the immunization records, the volunteer would then add this historical data into the Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. This ensures that the patient’s upcoming appointment is informed by their complete immunization history, allowing for more accurate and effective healthcare provision.

CommuniCare OLE is an inclusive environment that promotes and values diversity and life experience. CommuniCare OLE encourages people of all backgrounds to contribute their unique perspectives to CommuniCare OLE as a volunteer including, but not limited to, Black, indigenous, people of color, immigrants, refugees, LGBTQIA+, people with disabilities, veterans, individuals of all ages and religions, as well as those who have experienced the criminal justice system.
