MLK Day of Service: Ongoing COVID-19 Vaccination
Our goal is to identify 10,000 RNs willing to serve
the country by administering COVID vaccines.
Our country needs us now more than ever.
RNs in acute care are exhausted. We must help them.
We must help President Biden, and we must help our country.
Not all of us are engaged in essential direct patient care (we see you, retired RNs, faculty, researchers, consultants, and nursing students!). There are literally millions of us, and we have essential skills to offer in this national pandemic emergency.
Vaccination centers are being set up all over the country and they need skilled staff. We have injection skills, assessment skills, organizational skills, communication and patient education skills. It is time our profession came to the rescue of our country. Let’s do this.
What: Pledge to help with vaccination efforts in your area.
1) Change this ALERT so it’s applicable to your local area. Publicize this effort through all your social media outlets.
2) Sign up with your local Medical Reserve Corps (MRC), many of which are sponsored by local health departments. There are many activities you can participate in, most important right now is vaccinating as many people as we can. There is also testing, contact tracing (done by phone), and other activities.
You may be required to have an “active” license. Some states are allowing retired RNs to give vaccines. You may need to have current CPR/BLS certification.
How: Join your community group planning vaccine distribution.
Find your local MRC unit at: MRC (hhs.gov) or your county health vaccine coordination center or email your state coordinator MRC (hhs.gov). MRCs have Statewide Unit Coordinators who you can contact with questions. If you can’t reach them, find a hospital or clinic where you can volunteer. This may require a little research, but we are good at that. Send local “how to” information to friends in your area – ask them to send to others.
When: Register on mobilize for MLK Day of Service, January 18.
As part of the Biden/Harris inauguration, the country has been asked to participate in the “MLK Day of Service Monday January 18th.” Let’s honor Martin Luther’s words from his I have a Dream Speech and make the “fierce urgency of now” meaningful. Send Joe Biden to the White House knowing he has thousands of nurses willing to help end this pandemic.
Help us track our progress!
Please fill out this Google form when you have volunteered so we can let President Biden and Vice President Harris know how many nurses are on their way to help!
