Process to become UI Health Team Vaccine Volunteer:
Primary volunteer site for the State. Suggestion: register here if wanting the state to reach out when state opportunities are available. (medical and non medical). In this site you can click the “Organizations” link AFTER your registration is fully complete (it may direct you do it during) and then pick organizations you are interested in helping (ie: State Covid 19 Mass Vaccination AND Cook County Department of Health (pick these for sure), (Chicago Medical Reserves Corp, local dept of health are others you can choose – you may be asked to add other groups as they start to need more). You should get an email after saying “registration complete” but then we all wait until the state is ready for us. 🙂 UPDATE 2/10/21 Add CHICAGO MRC if you want to help with sites in the city
IL Helps Volunteer Guide:
***Link to IL Helps Site:
Cook County Stating that you should pick Cook County Department of Health AND State Covid 19 Mass Vaccination as the organizations you want to join (when you are asked to join an organization). UPDATE 2/10/21 Add CHICAGO MRC if you want to help with sites in the city
(Answer to a popular question… Yes, some of these sites will vaccinate you as a volunteer. You will need to give them a certain amount of shifts of your time – but again, there is NO GUARANTEE THAT YOU WILL BE VACCINATED)
2/4/21 ⇒ Cook County has informed us that at THIS time, they will not be using volunteers for their mass clinics – they are working with the National Guard at this time. They WILL be opening sites most likely early March/April that will be needing volunteers. For now, keep looking here, but seek other opportunities to help. Keep registered at IL HELPS (sign up for Cook County MRC, State Mass Vaccine, Cook County Department of Health)
