Since the start of the COVID-19 Pandemic, volunteers have been essential to our relief and recovery efforts in Philadelphia. As we continue to roll out our vaccine efforts, we are asking that Philadelphians once again step up to support the community organizations, medical professionals, and FEMA through volunteer service.
Over the next few months, the City of Philadelphia will be recruiting volunteers to serve at vaccination sites to support distribution and to share information to get the word out about vaccines.
