If Youre Passionate about Public Health, Volunteer with the Medical Reserve Corps! – Prince William Living

Provided by Prince William County

Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, local Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) volunteers have served in Prince William County and the surrounding areas. MRC volunteers supportCOVID-19 testing sites and vaccination clinics, and educate the community on the best ways to prevent spreading and contracting the virus.

The MRC is a group of dedicated volunteers, who donate their time and talents to prepare for and respond to public health emergencies and promote healthy living throughout the year. MRC volunteers supplement existing emergency and public health resources.

Jeff Scheulen has volunteered with the MRC since April 2020. He began helping with testing, then moved on to help with the vaccination clinics. Jeff said, Im retired, and when I heard about MRC, which I never heard of before COVID, I realized there was a path for me to help out and support the community. My past career as a paramedic, thats what I did. I helped people.

Anyone can join the MRC; no medical experience is needed. Volunteers receive free training and participate in drills and exercises to prepare for emergencies. Volunteers must be over 18 and pass a criminal background check.
