The Louisiana Department of Health is asking people who have retired from the medical field to volunteer to help the state speed up the process of administering the COVID-19 vaccine. Those eligible to volunteer include retired: Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, Dentists Paramedics and emergency medical technicians or Physician’s assistants. Officials say volunteers will be offered flexible workdays and times and can volunteer in the mornings, afternoons, and evenings. LDH will provide personal protective equipment and training on how to administer the vaccine to those who volunteer. This call for help will make sure the state has the workers in place for mass vaccinations once the vaccine becomes more readily available.
