Opportunities to Help
If you would like to volunteer at an Alameda County-supported Vaccination Clinic and/or support other Health Care Facility staffing needs, please complete the appropriate online forms and registration.
Non-medical volunteers: Please register with the California Health Corps here. You will be asked to submit to a brief background check.
Medical volunteers: Please complete both of the following registration forms.
- Register with the California Health Corps and be sure to sign up for the “Alameda County Unit.”
- Sign up with Alameda Count through this electronic form. You will be asked to submit to a brief background check.
At this time, we are fortunate to have a large number of volunteer offers which may cause delays in our vetting system and background check process. We will process these as quickly as possible in anticipation of needing additional volunteers in the coming months as our vaccine allocation from the state increases. There is no pay for volunteering at vaccination sites. Thank you for your patience as this process ramps up.
