FEMA asked APhA to help them identify pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and student pharmacists to help with their COVID-19 vaccination efforts. They are looking for volunteers who would be willing to travel to states that have requested FEMA assistance with administering vaccines. FEMA will cover the costs of transportation, lodging, per diem, and other specified expenses. Volunteers can be both active practitioners or retirees with immunization training. They are looking for individuals who can commit to time spans of 14-60 consecutive days. Volunteers should be able to deploy with at least 48 hours’ notice.

At this point, FEMA is interested in determining whether there are pharmacists, technicians, or students who are interested in volunteering. If you are interested in volunteering, please complete the short survey below by Tuesday, February 16, 2021.

Filling out this survey does not commit you to participating and it does not guarantee that you will be working with FEMA.
