Volunteers Needed for Flu Blitz: Sept 29 – Oct 1

Similar to the call to campus to assist with student move out last spring, there is an opportunity to help with next week’s Flu Blitz.

UHS and HR are asking for volunteers to assist during the clinic. Rest assured, staff are not being asked to administer the vaccines. Rather, volunteers are needed to greet people when they arrive, to check their scheduled appointment, to facilitate signing consent forms, to swipe IDs, to run supplies, to direct people and so on. With the need for physical distancing during this event, there is simply a need for more people to help with the steps necessary to get students, faculty, and staff through the process as safely and efficiently as possible.

Staff can sign up to volunteer here.

Each day, we need nearly 20 volunteers every hour, 9:30 am – 8:00 pm.

There is a separate tab for each day – September 29, September 30 and October 1st. Feel free to sign up for multiple shifts if your schedule allows.

Directions are on the signup form and are:

  • Arrive at Gate B of the ND Stadium.
  • Complete your daily health screening prior to arriving.
  • Wear your mask.
  • Dress comfortably. Closed toed shoes required.

Volunteers will receive an email on Monday, Sept. 28th with more information. Any volunteer questions can be directed to Kathy Brannock at kbrannoc@nd.edu.

Finally, please know we will likely have a second Flu Blitz later in October at which time we will share a second request for volunteers as well.

The Flu Blitz is particularly important during this time. As you may know, the University is requiring all students and strongly encouraging all faculty and staff to receive the vaccine this year. For all information regarding this event, please visit HERE.
