The University of Arizona is transitioning to a high-capacity state vaccination site that will eventually operate 24/7 and serve up to 6,000 people per day. It is located on the University of Arizona Mall.

Volunteer Opportunities

Medical volunteers are urgently needed to help staff the university's high-capacity state vaccination site in six-hour shifts from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. every day of the week. Those who are interested are asked to register with the Arizona Disaster Healthcare Volunteers and then complete the UArizona vaccination POD volunteer form. Once registered, POD staff will contact you as soon as opportunities become available.

University of Arizona POD Volunteer Opportunities

We are recruiting both medical and non-medical volunteers to help staff drive-thru and sit-down vaccination sites. Many hands are needed to accomplish the feat of vaccinating the people of Pima County. Whatever your background, training or interests, we have an important role for you!

*All volunteers must be at least 18 years of age*

Most volunteer positions require standing and walking outside as well as interacting, while masked, outside, and at a distance, with vaccine recipients who are in their cars. Snacks, water and a break location will be provided. Masks are to be worn at all times while on the UA campus.

Volunteer Vaccination

For all volunteer roles, after the completion of 1 (one) shift you are eligible to be registered for vaccination. Volunteers are typically able to be vaccinated within a few days of their first shift. We will assist our eligible volunteers with registering for their vaccine appointment. 

Specialized Volunteer Opportunities

If you choose to volunteer in a specialized role (scribe, vaccinator, registration or observation assistant), we request that you work at least 3 (three) shifts at this POD location due to the need for advanced training. It takes the hard work of our entire community to deliver vaccinations, and we appreciate all return volunteers in these roles!

If you are interested in organizing a group to volunteer together, please contact Ann Harris at .
