Subject: Vaccination Clinic Volunteers Needed
Yesterday we successfully operated a live test run of the COVID-19 Vaccination Clinic at Orton Center on the University of Redlands’ main campus – including vaccinating and training over 75 volunteers! As mentioned in previous announcements, the University must provide the staff to operate the clinic, so please consider volunteering, beginning with the clinic’s opening day this Friday, March 5.
The new volunteer portal at https://gobulldogs.ivolunteer.com/ is now ready, so please go there to sign up for desired shifts (morning or afternoon) and indicate your preferred role from a list of position descriptions (online and attached to this email). While many volunteers will be from our University community, we will also seek volunteers from the larger Redlands community to sustain clinic operations.
For College of Arts and Sciences undergraduates, volunteering at the vaccination clinic is eligible to fulfill Community Service Activity Course (CSAC)/Community Engagement and Reflection (CER) requirements. For more information, contact CSL_Office@Redlands.edu.
Some important items to note:
The vaccination clinic will be held in Orton Center, which is located off of Brockton Avenue, between N. University and N. Grove Streets, on the main U of R campus. Note the drive between Merriam and North Halls will be closed to through traffic on clinic days. At check in, you will need to provide a photo ID and proof of employment at the University (ID badge, virtual ID badge available in Redlands App, pay stub, etc.)
