East Hampton Town is seeking additional volunteers to help staff a first-dose vaccination clinic on Saturday from noon to 4 p.m. at its Center for Humanities on Stephen Hand's Path.
Volunteers will help direct traffic, check people in, and monitor people after they have received their shots. Volunteers with health-care experience are also needed to serve as vaccinators. People such as nurses, dentists, or emergency medical technicians who are not yet certified to administer vaccines can complete online training to do so. Volunteers need not have completed their vaccine series, and those who have yet to receive a first dose may have an opportunity to be vaccinated during Saturday's clinic.
Those interested in volunteering have been asked to call Supervisor Peter Van Scoyoc's office on Friday at 631-324-4140 or email [email protected].
People who have preregistered on the town's online vaccine hub, ehtownvaccine.org, were notified directly by phone or email of the opportunity to schedule an appointment on Saturday. On Friday, the town urged people who had preregistered to check their emails for a notification about appointments. A limited number for Saturday's clinic were still available as of early Friday to people who had registered in advance. The town plans to conduct future clinics as vaccines become available.
