El Paso VOAD Assisting DPH with H1N1 Immunization

28 10 2009

The City of El Paso Department of Public Health requested VOAD support to provide water stations at several clinics conducting H1N1 immunizations around the city starting Wednesday October 28, 2009. The sites may continue to operate daily (except Sunday) as supply and demand dictate, at the following locations:

* Henderson, 721 S. Mesa: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday
* Westside, 5195 Mace: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Saturday
* Northeast, 5587 Transmountain: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday
* Ysleta, 110 Candelaria: 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Volunteers are needed to work a shift of six hours either in the morning (7a-1p) or afternoon (1p-7p) providing cups of water to keep folks hydrated. Approximately 12 volunteers will be needed per shift, or 24 per day. All volunteers will receive advance immunizations and personal care instruction to minimize risk of exposure.

If you or your volunteers would like to help, please notify Red Cross Disaster Services Manager Freddy Martinez with your preferred location, days of the week, and times. You can email Freddy at martinezf@usa.redcross.org. Please notify him in advance and confirm that you are needed for a shift before reporting for duty.
