Greenbelt, Maryland – Nothing is more rewarding than giving your time to help a community.   

Voluntary organizations and individual volunteers play a key role at the Greenbelt, Maryland Community Vaccination Center where they are helping the site reach its goal of providing 3,000 COVID-19 vaccinations each day. Working alongside federal, state, and local staff, are organizations like the American Red Cross, AmeriCorps, the U. S. Veteran Reserve Corps, Southern Baptist Disaster Relief and volunteers from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, as well as local individuals volunteering through Maryland Voluntary Organizations Active in Disaster (MD VOAD). This generosity of spirit and commitment are celebrated especially during National Volunteer Week, April 18-24.

“Together we are providing the community equitable access to receive their vaccines and without our volunteer agencies it wouldn’t be possible. By working together, we are ensuring that our mission has a positive impact on the communities we are serving,” said Joe Basham, Voluntary Agencies Liaison for FEMA at Greenbelt.

Local individuals may register with MD VOAD at www.marylandvoad.org to work 4-hour shifts at the facility. These volunteers will provide non-clinical support and may serve as greeters providing information sheets, directions, or assistance to individuals with access and functional needs.

The Greenbelt, Maryland Community Vaccination Center is open seven days a week and walk-ins are welcome. The hours of operation are Monday-Tuesday 7 a.m. - 3 p.m.; Wednesday-Thursday from noon – 8 p.m.; and Friday- Sunday 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.

Register for an appointment by visiting covidvax.maryland.gov or calling: 1-855-MD-GOVAX (1-855-634-6829). Those between the ages of 16 and 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian to receive a vaccination.
