Vaccine Volunteer Project

To support the State of Maryland in facilitating the vaccination of eligible members of our community, Johns Hopkins University is recruiting student volunteers for non-clinical roles to staff the mass vaccination site at M&T Bank Stadium.

Vaccination Clinic Volunteering: Non-Clinical Volunteers

M&T Bank Stadium

Vaccination Clinic volunteer

The Maryland Department of Health is launching mass-vaccination clinics across the state to increase the vaccination rate as doses become available to the priority groups. At this time, JHU student volunteer teams will support the Vaccination Clinic at M&T Bank Stadium four days per week in non-clinical roles. Affiliates may register to serve during the morning or afternoon shifts on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. If the state expands the program and volunteers are available, additional shifts may be added in the future.

Volunteers will receive on-site instruction from Maryland State Employees. Volunteers may be asked to serve as greeters, guides, runners, observers, etc.

Frequently Asked Questions

If I volunteer, will I be able to get the vaccine at my shift?

At this time there is no indication that the vaccine will be made available to volunteers who do not fall within the current priority groups. If you do meet criteria for the current groups, we encourage you to follow your health care provider’s guidance to obtain your vaccination.

Volunteers are required to serve the duration of the shift. If you have a commitment that would require you to leave early, we ask that you not register for the shift.
