PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – The South Dakota Department of Health (DOH) is looking for volunteers to help administer the coronavirus vaccines.

Health officials have set up a website where potential volunteers from across the state can register to assist with COVID-19 vaccination efforts.

And, volunteers who are willing to help in medical settings may qualify to receive their vaccine early.

Volunteers who register on the portal can select what type of volunteer work they are seeking.

The DOH says you don’t necessarily have to have a medical background. Applicants will be vetted by DOH before any volunteer opportunities are offered.
