What if I told you that you could punch COVID-19 in the face?

Punch Covid-19 In The Face

COVID-19 has been in the United States for at least eleven months now, and we don’t know when this nightmare will be over. But what if I told you that you can help the United States to get “back to the new normal” faster? If you’re reading this blog post, you probably already volunteer with an anime convention. You know all about how to put on a large event and keep thousands of folks moving and grooving all day and all night. So helping to get shots into the arms of 500 to 10,000 people? That’s small potatoes for you.

That’s right. You can help with vaccinations. Hear me out:

Dr. Laura Block receives the vaccine.

You might not be the one qualified to wield the needle, but for every medically trained volunteer on a vaccination site, those organizations keep five to eight non-medical volunteers busy directing traffic, registering patients, and keeping folks informed. These are critically important roles. These roles can be filled with your people (who may or may not be wearing your con t-shirt, ahem). Don’t underestimate the importance of these non-medical jobs – the line doesn’t move and nothing can happen without that help!

There’s a number of different ways to get involved in helping out. These organizations can provide you with “just-in-time” training so that you can help punch COVID-19 in the face. You may need to attend an orientation or take a class, and oftentimes these events are held online, either weekly or on-demand. Just think of the difference your convention staff can make!
