Medical Reserve Corps
No Medical Experience Necessary
If a bioterrorism event or epidemic requires it, the Loudoun County Health Department is preparing for the possibility of opening emergency mass vaccination and medication dispensing clinics in select locations throughout the county. Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers, both nonmedical and medical, would be key to staffing these sites. Nonmedical volunteers would perform key clinic roles such as registration, data entry, language translation, medical personnel assistance, and directing foot traffic.
MRC members can also assist with other public health responses in our community and have the opportunity to be trained in CPR and first aid if they so desire.
Who Should Volunteer
Anyone who wants to help the Health Department keep Loudoun County residents safe from an outbreak of disease and protect the public's health, and who:
- Is a Loudoun County resident at least 16 years old
- Is willing to complete an orientation session and incident command class, either online or in person
- Is willing to serve during an emergency and has no professional or personal commitment that may prevent them from doing so
- Is willing to undergo a reference or background check
