Request for Bilingual Volunteers for COVID-19 Vaccination site at NRG Park

As you’ve read in the news, FEMA has set up a large COVID-19 Vaccination site at NRG Park, serving 6,000 people per day. Because of the large number of our community coming through, there’s a need for bilingual volunteers to help those whose first language may not be English.

There’s an urgent need for Vietnamese and Mandarin-speaking volunteers. Below are some of the highlights of the request:

  • The NRG Park CVC (Community Vaccination Center) runs 7 days a week, from 8am to 6pm (or until the last vaccine for the day is given)
  • There are 2 shifts each day: 7a-1pm and 1pm-7p
  • Volunteers must be 18 years or older
  • Volunteers need to have an advanced knowledge of both languages English-Mandarin/English-Vietnamese, as some of the translations are medical in nature
  • Volunteers MAY be eligible to receive a vaccine at the end of the day if there are doses left over that must be used. This will vary day to day and are not guaranteed.
  • This is an outdoor volunteer position and they will be on their feet most, if not all, of the day
  • Breakfast and Lunch will be served and snacks, coffee, and water are available throughout the day
  • You can sign up for as many shifts as you able to serve
