You can volunteer to make sure seniors have access to vaccines

Champaign-Urbana Covid Vaccine Outreach formed to make sure that information about vaccinations is widely shared throughout the community. They are working with the CRIS Healthy Aging Center to assist area seniors with signing up for vaccine appointments, and providing transportation if needed. From their Facebook post:

“We are looking for people who would be willing to volunteer their time to call these individuals and assist them with the sign up process. (Callers will have a list of CRIS clients and will record names and contact numbers of anyone who has interest in the vaccine and whether or not they need transportation assistance.) The lists will then be sent to CUPHD to schedule the appointments. There are 3000 people on the CRIS list, which is why volunteer outreach is crucial.”

If you are interested in volunteering, you can sign up here. Email [email protected] if you have further questions.
