Vermont health care providers are working overtime to assure everyone receives the best care during this COVID-19 pandemic. Vermont’s Medical Reserve Corps (MRC) units are community-based groups of volunteers who supplement public health resources with their existing skills.
MRC volunteers are being utilized for COVID-19 vaccine operations as vaccine quantities allow for administration at the Local Health Offices. Both medical and non-medical volunteers are used at the clinics. The minimum ask for Vaccination Clinic staffing is to be willing to service at one (1) clinic per week for eight (8) hours for three (3) months. This work will be in person, and PPE (surgical masks and gloves, with face shields for vaccinators) will be provided. Frequency of actually being scheduled for a shift varies based on the size of the staffing pool in each location.

Information MRC Training via zoom platform: “De-Escalation – What We Say and How We Say It” with Mourning Fox.
Mourning Fox’s verbal de-escalation and violence prevention trainings incorporate his knowledge and experience along with aspects from the various models that he has been trained in. Fox is a highly energetic presenter, using real life situations and experiences to enhance the learning of his participants. People taking his class learn the predictors of violence, those risk factors that increase risk for violence, active listening skills and de-escalation techniques. In addition, participants develop a common language to describe behaviors to better enhance the communication among staff and increase the likelihood of safe outcomes.
